Significance and Use
1.1 This test method determines the length of time a thermosetting coating powder takes to gel on a polished metal surface at a specified temperature, such as 204°C (400°F). The determination of the gel time is a very simple method for the characterization and quality control of coating powders. However, the gel time determined by this method is not directly related to the time for the coating powder to cure in practical applications.
