This International Standard specifies the procedure and recommended tooling to be used for testing resistance spot and projection welds by means of peel and chisel tests. It applies to welds made in two or more sheets in the thickness range of 0,5 mm to 3,0 mm.
The aim of these tests is to determine:
-- weld size and failure type when the tests are used as destructive tests, and
-- verification of welds when the tests are used as non-destructive tests.
NOTE In the previous edition of this International Standard, seam welds were included. The preferred method of peel testing seam welds (mechanized peel testing) is now covered in ISO 14270.
