ASTM F2459-18 testing in a laboratory

As a manufacturer, you would like to carry out an analysis in accordance with the ASTM F2459-18 standard.

What is ASTM F2459-18?

ASTM F2459-18 is a technical specification that sets out test methods for determining the adhesion of electrodeposited coatings to metal substrates by means of a tensile test.

What is an electrodeposited coating?

An electrodeposited coating is applied to a material or object using an electrochemical process known as electroplating. The material to be treated is placed in a solution containing metal ions and a diffused metal current attaches these metal ions to the surface of the material.

The aim of this surface treatment is to improve the appearance, corrosion or wear resistance and electrical properties of many parts. This process is regularly used in the automotive, aerospace, medical devices and jewellery industries, etc.
