Thermal spraying - Determination of shear load resistance of thermally sprayed coatings
This European Standard specifies the procedure for determination of the shear load resistance of thermally sprayed coatings, provided that a minimum thickness is given. Additionally this European Standard defines the shear load resistance and the designation of the fracture’s structure on the test specimen, which occurs when the shear adhesive or adhesive/ cohesive or cohesive strength of the coating or the coating system will be exceeded. The test report is the basis for comparative statements regarding shear load resistance and structure of fracture. NOTE The test for the determination of the shear load resistance is not recommended for sprayed coatings thinner than approximately 150 µm because the adjustment of shear distance becomes critical.
