- Test for coating adhesion on flat substrates: a technical note
- Leigh, Sang Ha; Berndt, C. C.
- The standard tensile adhesion test (TAT), ASTM C633, has been modified to perform multiple tests on flat and wide substrates. The TAT geometry, which specifies a 1-in. (25.4-mm)-diameter cylindrical substrate, has been used as the pull-off bar. Two renditions of this test were implemented and the Weibull moduli and characteristic stresses for both test methods obtained. The modified TAT, termed as the single-bar (SB) method, yields a higher Weibull modulus and characteristic strength than the other method, which is termed the double-bar (DB) method. It is believed that the different test results between the two methods arise from different stress distributions near the interface of the coating and substrate.
