  • Make a lattice pattern in the film with the appropriate tool, cutting to the substrate.
  • Brush several times lightly backwards and forwards, using a soft brush or tissue to remove any detached flakes or ribbons of coatings.

  • Examine the grid area using an illuminated magnifier.

DIN EN ISO 2409 standard describe that the number of cuts shall be 6. The spacing of the cuts in each direction shall be equal and shall depend on the thickness of the coating and on the type of substrate as follows:

1 mm space for hard substrates (metal) 0 - 60µm
2 mm space for soft substrates (plastic) 0 - 60µm
2 mm space for hard or soft substrates 61 - 120µm
3 mm space for hard or soft substrate 121 - 250µm
