Adhesion test in acc. with DIN EN ISO 2409

The cross-cut test method is used for coating thicknesses of less than 250 μm.

After cutting through the paint layer down to the substrate at fixed intervals, the adhesion can be evaluated using a special cross-cut tester with single-blade or multi-blade cutting tools. A cross-cut characteristic value of 0 is the best result at which no detachment has taken place and a characteristic value of 5 is the worst result where the paint film of the grid has completely flaked off.
