Deposits may also be present on the surface causing telegraphing current traveling through a moisture path to a discontinuity, giving an erroneous indication or current leakage across the surface of the coating due to contamination.

Its use on a coating previously exposed to an immersion condition has often resulted in damage to the coating and has produced erroneous detection of discontinuities due to permeation or moisture absorption of the coating. The allowable number of discontinuities should be determined prior to conducting this test since the acceptable quantity of discontinuities will vary depending on coating film thickness, design, and service conditions.


Solvents retained in an uncured coating film may form an electrically conductive path through the film to the substrate.

Atmospheric conditions shall also be considered since the voltage required for the spark to gap a given distance in air varies with the conductivity of the air at the time the test is conducted.

The values given in parentheses are for information only.

This practice provides a procedure for electrical detection of minute discontinuities in nonconductive coating systems. For concrete surfaces, refer to Practice D Discontinuities in a coating are x5162 very minute and not readily visible. The degree of coating continuity required is dictated by service conditions.

It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. The use of a high voltage tester on previously exposed coatings has to be carefully considered because of possible spark-through, which will damage an otherwise sound coating.


High voltage spark test equipment is generally used for determining the existences of discontinuities in coating films having a total thickness of greater than 0. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. Consult the coating manufacturer for proper test equipment and inspection voltages.

Although a low voltage tester can be used without damaging the coating, it may d55162 produce erroneous results. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard.
