ISO 16276-1:2007 specifies procedures for assessing the fracture strength of a protective paint coating of any thickness on a steel substrate of thickness not less than 10 mm. The procedures given in this part of ISO 16276 are based on methods used with different types of pull-off test equipment. The results obtained using such different types of equipment are not comparable.
This part of ISO 16276 also specifies suitable equipment and defines inspection areas, sampling plans and acceptance/rejection criteria.
It does not give any values of the fracture strength of different protective paint coatings.
