Show Complete Document History
The following bibliographic material is provided to assist you with your purchasing decision:
1.1 This test standard covers equipment and methods for using phosphomolybdic acid (PMA) to detect gross defects and mechanical damage including wear through in metallic coatings of gold, silver, or palladium. These metals comprise the topmost metallic layers over substrates of nickel, copper, or copper alloys.
1.2 Recent reviews of porosity testing, which include those for gross defects, and testing methods can be found in the literature., An ASTM guide to the selection of porosity and gross defect tests for electrodeposits and related metallic coatings is available as Guide . Other related porosity and gross defects test standards are Test Methods , , , , , and , Specifications , ,and .
1.3 The values stated in SI units are the preferred units. Those in parentheses are for information only.
1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
1.5 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
