Revision Date: August 16, 2010
Updated On: September 20, 2010
Editorial Change:
The pull-off strength of a coating is an important performance property that has been used in specifications. This test method serves as a means for uniformly preparing and testing coated surfaces, and evaluating and reporting the results. This test method is applicable to any portable apparatus meeting the basic requirements for determining the pull-off strength of a coating.

Variations in results obtained using different devices or different substrates with the same coating are possible (see Section 11). Therefore, it is recommended that the type of apparatus and the substrate be mutually agreed upon between the interested parties.

The purchaser or specifier shall designate a specific test method, that is, B, C, D, E, or F when calling out this standard.
