Bond Strength Testing Services

BOND STRENGTH TESTING TO EVALUATE COATING ADHESION PROPERTIES

Bond strength testing of Thermal Spray Coatings to ASTM C633 by IMR's coatings evaluation lab is performed by bonding coupons between pull fixtures, or by bonding special studs to the surface. Tests are performed on standard load frames, or using specialized apparatus, where a force measurement is taken and the failure strength of the tested sample is recorded.

Results can be analyzed and output immediately or exported in a number of database formats for subsequent analysis as desired. Visual examinations after the test are used to characterize the nature of how the coating failed, whether in cohesive, adhesive, or mixed mode.
