Inspection and Engineering: ASTM D 4541

Objective

The objective of this training unit is to give a thorough overview of ASTM D4541 which is the test method for determining the pull-off strength of coatings using a portable adhesion tester.

The test methods cover procedures for assessing the adhesion of coating films to metallic substrates by applying a force to a dolly attached to the coating surface by an adhesive.
