ASTM WK42550

    New Test Method for Measuring Coating Thickness Using Spherical Geometry

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: D02.L0.05 | Committee D02 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers a procedure for measuring the thickness of a coating using the Ball on Three Disk Test Stand. The dimensions of wear scars are measured to calculate the coating thickness using spherical geometry. 1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. 1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.


    The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
