It allows to measure the adhesion of non-stick coatings to an aluminum surface with a grid incision on coated surface. The test can be carried out either on discs or on finished products, for both roller coated or spay coated coatings.
This test is carried out to check the resistance to abrasion due the stressed use of the non-stick part. The abrasive part is 3M Scotch Brite pad.
This test is carried out to check the resistance to abrasion due the stressed use of the non-stick part. The abrasive part is a mixture of corundum sand, stainless steel bearings and water.
Non-stick coated cookware is exposed to boiling salty water and vapors for long periods of time. This allows evaluations about coating’ resistance to long-term cyclical exposure to boiling salted water and steam.
Non-stick test monitors the coating’ non-stick quality. It is carried out by pouring milk inside the cooking part, and bringing it to maximum temperature until it burns out. By using a nylon or wood tool, burn milk slip away.
Through a series of high-temperature cycles, with aggressive chemicals contained in detergents, and to high temperature steam during the drying process, non-stick resistant test is carried out.
