Standard Guide for Testing Coil Coatings


1.1 This guide covers procedures for testing coil coatings. The test methods included are listed in Table 1. Where more than one test method is listed for the same characteristic, no attempt is made to indicate superiority of one method over another. Selection of methods to be followed must be governed by the requirements in each individual case, together with agreement between the producer and user.

1.2 This guide also refers to methods developed specifically for the Coil Industry by the National Coil Coaters Association.

1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given 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 and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

Significance and Use

This guide represents a collection of pertinent ASTM test methods used within the coil coatings industry. In the past, coil coaters world wide depended on industry standards written by the National Coil Coaters Association. That association, working cooperatively with ASTM, will no longer issue new, nor update old, standards.
