1.1 This test practice covers equipment and methods for revealing the porosity of gold and palladium coatings, particularly electrodeposits and clad metals used on electrical contacts.
1.2 This test practice is suitable for coatings containing gold or 75 % by mass of palladium on substrates of copper, nickel, and their alloys, which are commonly used in electrical contacts.
1.3 A variety of full porosity testing methods is described in the literature., These porosity Test Methods are , , , , and . An ASTM Guide to the selection of porosity tests for electrodeposits and related metallic coatings is available as Guide .
1.4 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
