Significance and Use
This test method is intended for testing the porcelain enamel finish on oven parts of self-cleaning ranges.
The numerical values and visual evaluation derived by this test method are used to measure differences in heat resistant characteristics between enamel formulas intended to meet oven manufacturer specifications.
1.1 This test method covers the procedure for the qualitative and quantitative evaluation of static heat effects on porcelain enamel coatings.
1.2 This test method is adaptable to various temperatures and times, since the requirements in the porcelain enameling industry differ between manufacturers.
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.
