Coating And Film Testing
The cross-cut test is a very rapid and simple method for the assessment of single and multi-coat systems. Here, cuts in a 30° angle (method A) or right-angle (method B) are executed so that you receive a lattice pattern or an X-shape. These test methods can be used as quick pass/fail tests. When applied to a multi-coat system, assessment of the adhesion of individual layers of the coating among each other may be carried out.
