Standard Test Method for Adhesion of Solid Film Lubricants

Significance and Use

5.1 Effective solid film lubricant coatings must adhere to surfaces to provide adequate lubrication in applications with restricted access where fluid lubricants cannot easily be replenished. Loss of coating adhesion results in metal to metal contact causing significant wear of contacting surfaces. Adhesion is critical to the performance of the solid film lubricant. Examples of solid film lubricant applications include fasteners, bearings and sliding members in automotive, aircraft, and aerospace hardware.

5.2 This test method is intended to determine the adhesion of solid film lubricant coatings when submitted to contact with water and other fluids. Results of this test provide an indication of the suitability of the lubricant coating in applications where contact with water or other fluids is likely.

Scope

1.1 This test method2 covers the measurement of the adhesion characteristics of dry solid film lubricants.

1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard.

1.2.1 Exception—The values given in parentheses are provided for information only.

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, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

1.4 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
