Introducing ASTM D522 - Industrial Physics  

ASTM D522 is a global ASTM testing method for mandrel bend testing of attached organic coatings.  

The coating of a substrate can be elongated and bent during manufacture or when in use. These ASTM test methods have been useful in rating attached coatings for their ability to resist cracking when elongated. They have been useful in evaluating the flexibility of coatings on flexible substrates. 

Following the ASTM D22 mandrel bend testing method you can determine the resistance to cracking - or flexibility - of a wide range of organic coatings attached to substrates of sheet metal or rubber-type materials.

ASTM D522 testing equipment  

So, how can Industrial Physics improve your ASTM D522 testing?  

TQC Sheen Bend Test Conical Mandrel (Pro) 

The pro version of our flexibility testing device bends coated test panels over a conical shaped mandrel. From there it assesses the elasticity or resistance of a coating, paint or varnish to cracking, elongation and detachment from a metal test panel in accordance with ASTM D522.  

The conical shape of the bending area allows the deformation of the test panel and examination of the elasticity range of a coating over any diameter between 3.1 and 38mm in one single test. 

TQC Sheen Bend Test Conical Mandrel (Basic) 

A simplified but highly accurate and reliable version of the pro version of our bend testing device. It was also built to examine the elasticity range of a coating over any diameter between 3.1 and 38 mm in one single test.  

TQC Sheen Cylindrical Bend Test (Imperial) 

The TQC Sheen cylindrical bend test is a robust yet elegant testing instrument that measures the elasticity, elongation and adhesion of a paint film at bending stress.  

It’s designed to perform tests according to the latest ASTM D522 standards. It will check the resistance of a coating, paint or varnish to cracking and detachment from a surface when subjected to bending around a cylindrical mandrel.
