New Test Methods for Bend Testing of Metallic-Coated Steel Sheet to Evaluate Coating Adhesion

1. Scope

The promotion of knowledge, the stimulation of research and the development of standards in the area of iron and steel products protected against corrosion by use of metallic coatings, and non-metallic coatings which may be specified for use as supplemental protection. The types of standards developed include, but are not limited to, specifications, practices, test methods, and terminology.
The work of this Committee will be coordinated with other ASTM Committees and other organizations having mutual interest.


steel sheet; steel sheet – metallic-coated; coating adhesion


Committee A05 does not have an approved standard method for adherence testing of metallic coatings on steel sheet.  This ballot proposes a test method to address this. 

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