The mechanical resistance of coatings is tested by means of different tests according to the specific properties to be evaluated. The different tests used in the coating sector are:
Cupping test. Evaluates the effects of a surface deformation
Torsion test. Evaluates the elasticity of the coating
Impact test. Evaluates the flexibility and brittleness of the coating.
We explain the cupping test
