Direct Impact Resistance: no visible signs of
chipping, cracking detachment from the steel plate
when a 2 lb. steel ball was dropped from 8 feet
with the impact at the center of the specimen,
coating exhibited firm adhesion outside the impact
Gardner Impact Resistance; external/concave impact
of a 70"/lb.; no damage
No evidence of rusting or blistering when exposed
for a continuous 336 hours.
After 30 minutes immersion in gasoline, sample
showed no wrinkling loss of adhesion. After subsequent
drying for 2 hours, the film show no blistering,
no softening and no noticeable discoloration.
TO ACIDS [Hydrochloric (HCl), Nitric
(HN03), Sulfuric (H2SO4)
No evidence of softening, blistering, wrinkling,
loss of adhesion appreciable color change after
4 hours exposure.
No evidence of blistering or wrinkling when immersed
in water at 23 C for a continuous 18 hours.
Coating showed no loss of adhesion, cracking or
peeling and no loss of its protective value when
bent at 0 F (-18 C) through 360 F over a 1/8"
Class 5 - no evidence of flaking or loss of adhesion.
RESISTANCE (FALLING SAND METHOD)
The coating exhibited excellent resistance to
abrasion. After 136,000 g there was no visible
