ISO 16276-1 is an international ISO standard that’s used to measure the corrosion protection of steel structures by protective paint systems.
This ISO method details procedures that can be used to assess the fracture strength of a protective paint coating of any thickness on most steel substrates - if they’re less than 10mm.
The ISO 16276-1 procedures are based on methods used with different types of pull-off testing equipment. The results obtained using such different types of equipment are not comparable.
Within the ISO 16276-1 standard you’ll also find information on the types of equipment to use and defined inspection areas, sampling plans and acceptance/rejection criteria. However, it doesn’t give any values of the fracture strength of different protective paint coatings.
While it’s not focused on ISO 16276-1, we’ve published a complete guide to pull-off adhesion testing to the similar ASTM D4541.
So, how can Industrial Physics improve your ISO 16276-1 testing?
Designed and built by TQC Sheen, our paint testing specialist company, the PosiTest adhesion tester measures the adhesion of coatings applied on many substrates. It’s an adhesion testing device for all kinds of materials including metal, wood, and concrete.
It conforms to several international standards including ISO 16276-1, ISO 4624, and ASTM D4541.
We make both manual and automatic models of this adhesion testing device, both of which feature a hydraulic pump. The automatic version is electronically controlled and applies smooth and continuous pull-off pressure, reducing user effort and the risk of influencing the pulling process.
