A number in parentheses indicates the year of last reapproval. A superscript epsilon e indicates an editorial change since the last revision or reapproval. The test methods included are listed in Table 1.
Where more than one test method is listed for the same characteristic, no attempt is made to indicate superiority of one method over another. Selection of the methods to be followed must atm governed by experience and the requirements in each individual case, together with agreement between d34451 purchaser and the seller. 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.

It is applicable to both thermoplastic and thermoset coatings, unless indicated otherwise. By design this guide does not purport to address test methods or procedures developed speci? Information on current test procedures for pipe qstm reinforced steel bar coating powders and powder coatings can be obtained through their respective ASTM Subcommittees, A It should be noted that many of the methods used for characterizing a coating powder, such as gel time Section 16 and inclined?
Interpretation of the test results will depend on the speci? These conditions may be indicated by the individual test procedure used or agreed upon between the purchaser and seller. Problems such as changes in gloss, surface c3451, physical properties, and color contamination may occur if incompatible powders are mixed. Rather than discover these problems on the production coating line, it is recommended that the compatibility of powders be checked prior to their use.
To obtain precise and reliable LEL results, it is best to employ the service of an independent laboratory, which has the special apparatus needed.
However, a quick calculation method, as listed below, has been proved in practice to be satisfactory when applied to coating application plants. Particle Size and Distribution There is unfortunately, no one optimum P.
Accelerated Storage Stability In addition, the coating powder has to melt,? In the case of a thermoset coating powder, an accelerated storage stability test can allow a powder satm to predict the physical and chemical stability of a coating powder in order to determine its long term usability as a function of time and temperature. The physical stability d4351 a thermoplastic coating powder can also be predicted. Typically, the cured weight loss from a coating powder will consist of water and low molecular weight organic compounds d3541 blocking agents, adtm both.
The cured weight loss may be requested in order to properly determine the exhaust requirements of a bake oven or to comply with state or federal reporting guidelines. At this time, there is not a recognized ASTM standard test method for determining the cured weight loss for a coating powder; however, the following procedure has proven satisfactory in the?
The exact identity of the materials lost during the cure cycle would have to be determined by other means to identify what weight percent is organic and inorganic that is, water—see Note 1.
Refer to Practice D34511 and local air quality regulations. By gentle tilting, spread the coating powder uniformly over the bottom of the dishes, then weigh to 0.

This test is most useful to the coating powder formulator. A coating powder is applied by volume mils thick by square feetbut often is purchased by weight pounds.
Melting Point Determination D351 4—The impact fusion resistance of a coating powder is dependent on many factors, not just its melt temperature. Some coating powder chemistries can be inherently resistant to impact fusion even though their tack temperature might be relatively low. There may however, be speci? A deviation from the standard bake must be agreed upon between the purchaser and seller.
For test to test repeatability, it is recommended that the same oven be used for all cured weight loss testing.
ASTM D() – Standard Guide for Testing Coating Powders and Powder Coatings
This test is 7 Allow 60 min for the warm up on the heating bar. Sprinkle a calibrating substance having the closest melting point to that of the powder on the heating bar. Observe the sharp division between solid and liquid. Place the pointer between these two divisions. Observe the specimen after 1 to 2 min. Brush the material towards the lower temperature and note the location where particles of powder adhere to the bar when brushed lightly.
Place the pointer at this point. Read the temperature and report in degrees Celsius. Remove the powder quickly and thoroughly before the setting occurs. Do not use abrasives to clean the bar. There are many types of abrasion tests available and often one, more than the others, will best simulate the abrasion resistance required in a particular end use application. Adhesion tests can also be used for testing the degree of attachment between a primer powder coating or other coating type and a second coat of coating powder that is, intercoat adhesion.
Failure, when it occurs, is usually in the form of discoloration, changes in gloss, blistering, softening, swelling, or loss of adhesion. Field experience has shown that, in general, the higher the? It would therefore be bene? The following test method indicated has been found suitable for this purpose.
The results are most meaningful when a control powder, one whose? The comparison of results are only valid for coating powders tested in the same laboratory at about the same time, not results between different laboratories.
The type, application, and treatment of any undercoat system should be agreed upon between the purchaser and the seller. It can also show whether there is any change in? Elongation is dependent on substrate type and? For powder coatings applied to coil strip or blanks, the standard elongation test used is the T-bend. The most widely recognized test for hardness is the pencil test.
It should be noted however, that pencil hardness is not the most reproducible test and interpreting the results is somewhat subjective. The results are highly astmm on such factors as; the pencil type used, the pressure exerted by the operator, and the care taken in preparing the pencil lead.
Some industries that is, automotive have also adopted the use of Knoop Indention Hardness. There is no consistent correlation between the two tests. Impact resistance is dependent on the substrate type and its preparation, the thickness of the substrate, and the? Therefore, d34451 test parameters should be agreed upon between the purchaser and d33451 seller.
Impact resistance has also been found to be a good indication of whether a coating powder has been d34511 cured. They cover determination of the pressure mottling and sticking, or blocking resistance of powder coatings applied to metal coil and blanks, or wood as they are stored prior to the? The print test can determine the degree of marring due to pressure.

In either case, it is important that the viewing and measurement conditions under which color difference is to be evaluated are agreed upon between the purchaser and seller see The color difference equation used should be agreed upon between purchaser and seller.
