Assessing The Results – Failure Attributes

Many National and International Standards, including ISO 4624 & ASTM D4541, require the user to record not only the pull-off force but also the nature of the failure. This is done by examining the bottom of the dolly and assessing the failure. In ‘Advanced’ mode on the Elcometer 510 it is possible to select the ‘Attributes’ feature (Menu/Setup/Gauge Mode/Advanced) allowing the nature of the fracture to be recorded against each reading and stored within the batch.
Examining The Dolly elcometer-510-automatic-pull-off-adhesion-tester-features-dollyface-substrate
a) Cohesive Failure: The coating fails within the body of a coating layer leaving the same coating on the surface and on the dolly face.
b) Adhesive Failure: Failure occurs at the interface between layers (intercoat) where one pulls away from the other. The “coating” on the dolly face will not be the same as that on the test area.
c) Glue Failure: When no coating is present on the dolly it must be recorded as a failure of the glue. This maybe due to incorrect or insufficient mixing of the component parts of the adhesive, incompatibility between the adhesive/coating/dolly/test surface.
