EverWare™ Rivets Testing


The TODCO ToughShell Coating System offers protection that goes well beyond ordinary finishes. And independent testing proves it.

............

ADHESION DRY TEST
Tests coating film adhesion to the substrate by cutting a cross-hatch through the film. Tape is applied, removed, and inspected for coating removal. 5B is the highest score.

TODCO score: 5B.
The edges of the cuts are completely smooth; none of the squares of the lattice are detached.

............

ADHESION WET TEST
Tests coating film adhesion to the substrate following soaking for 24 hours, then cross-hatch procedure. A guide to effects of weather exposure. 5B is the highest score.

TODCO score: 5B.
The edges of the cuts are completely smooth; none of the squares of the lattice are detached.

............

HARDNESS TEST
Tests the impact of dirt and grit in causing abrasion and scratches. Special pencils with diminishing hardnesses are pushed across the surface, stopping with the pencil that will not scratch the film. 6H is the highest score. (6H pencils were unavailable, so the TODCO maximum test score was 5H.)

TODCO score: 5H.

HUMIDITY TEST
Designed to evaluate coatings for wood products. The substrate is exposed to alternating high/low humidity at elevated temperatures. A pass/fail test of moisture absorption.
