PULL OFF TEST- Adhesion testing is addressed in ASTM D4541,
“Standard Method for Pull
Strength of Coatings using Portable Adhesion Testers”.
 A Tensile Adhesion Tester will determine the bond of a coating on a substrate, or cohesion of the coatingor cohesion of the substrate. Adhesion tests are DESTRUCTIVE and generally should only be conductedif a problem is suspected.Based on the previous visual assessment, the detachment was found localize on the existing bridgecoating system.FILM THICKNESS CHECK
There are three factors that come into play in pulling dollies”
• Manual or automatic
• Rate and Evenness of pull
• Squareness of pull
 Method of pull (applying force) is applied in 3 ways.Defelsko AT, HATE or Elcometer 108,
Nadzli Bin Maliki (NACE Level 1 Coatings Inspector CIP No. 16583)Select for the test location, the Pull out test was carried out for the existing coating system for theBatukawa existing bridge. There were total of 3 locations each location was attached with 3dollies.Prior to start the dollies attachment, proper recording shall records for the track purpose:Location A, Span 1 outer girders, web of girder 1 -, A1, A2, A3
Clean the coating surface of the existing bridge, marked as above.Measure the dry film thickness before sanding and after sanding recorded on the steel girdersPrepared for the dollies attach by using the high performance epoxy adhesion (Araldite Rapid)squeeze out the resin and hardener to 1:1 ratio and mix thoroughly apply mix to both jointsurface.Hold the dollies by using the tape for the hardening and curing time for at least 6 hours beforethe adhesion test carried out.
