Webinar Sticks to Adhesion Testing

Tuesday, July 5, 2011

Comment | More

The practical how-tos of pull-off adhesion testing will be the topic of a free upcoming webinar presented by JPCL and SSPC.

David Beamish, of DeFelsko Corp., will present the dos and don’ts of this critical test from 11 a.m. to noon EDT July 13.

David Beamish 
David Beamish, of DeFelsko Corp., will cover the basics of testing per ASTM D4541. 

Beamish will also explain the main differences between D4541, which primarily covers metal substrates, and D7234 (Standard Test Method for Pull-Off Adhesion Strength of Coatings on Concrete Using Portable Pull-Off Adhesion Testers), which was spun off in 2005 to address issues related to concrete.

Why Test Pull-Off Strength?

The pull-off strength of a coating is an important performance property that has been used in specifications. Variations in results obtained using different devices or different substrates with the same coating are possible. This test method serves as a means for uniformly preparing and testing coated surfaces, and evaluating and reporting the results.

The method is applicable to any portable apparatus meeting the basic requirements for determining the pull-off strength of a coating.

Registration, CEU Credits

The program is part of the JPCL/SSPC Webinar Education Series, which provides continuing education for SSPC recertifications and technology updates on important topics.

Participants may register free for the webinar here. SSPC is an accredited training provider for the Florida Board of Professional Engineers (FBPE), and Professional Engineers in Florida may submit SSPC Webinar Continuing Education Units to the board. To do so, applicants must download the FBPE CEU form and pass the Webinar Exam, which costs $25.
