The cross-hatch tape test method, also known as ASTM D3359, is a simple, qualitative means of classifying a coating's adhesion. The problem with this method alone is that if some amount of coating is removed from the substrate after the test, it can be difficult to properly estimate the percentage removed and the resulting classification rating.
But the ATA can automatically calculate and discover the classification rating of a coating. Since the test site has been digitized in order to calculate the amount of coating removed, it is easy to share electronically with interested parties.
- Take the guesswork out of your test results;
- Improve the repeatability of your testing program;
- Have confidence in the Classification Rating regardless of the user;
- Easily share test results electronically with interested parties;
