ISO 20567-2-2017 “Paints and varnishes — Determination of rock percussion resistance — Part 2: Single impact test with guided impact body”

ISO (International Organization for Standardization) is a global alliance of national standards bodies (ISO member bodies). The development of international standards is usually carried out through ISO technical committees. Each member institution interested in a subject on which a technical committee has been established has the right to be represented on that committee. International governmental and non-governmental organizations liaising with ISO are also involved in this work. ISO works closely with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on all matters of electrotechnical standardization.

The procedures used to develop this document and those used for further maintenance are described in Part 1 of the ISO/IEC Directive. In particular, note the different approval standards required for different types of ISO documents. This document has been drafted in accordance with the editing rules in Part 2 of the ISO/IEC Directive (see

The committee responsible for this document is ISO/TC 35, Paints and Varnishes, Subcommittee SC 9, Common Test Methods for Paints and Varnishes.

The second edition cancelled and replaced the first edition (ISO 20567-2:2005), which was technically revised with the following major changes:

– Specifications are added when the equipment is calibrated;

— The reference to optical imaging was removed;

— the clause on sampling was deleted;

– The description of the appropriate method of removing loose paint has been transferred to the information annex as an example, and the adhesive strength of the tape is no longer specified for the method of using tape;

— Made some minor corrections;

– This document has been edited and revised, and the normative references have been updated.

A list of all the parts in the ISO 20567 series can be found on the ISO website.

ISO 20567-2-2017 “Paints and varnishes — Determination of rock percussion resistance — Part 2: Single impact test with guided impact body”

In the automobile industry, multiple layers of paint are applied to the body for protection. Gravel, road metals, and other materials can damage these coatings, causing individual layers to peel off or the entire coating to layer off the substrate.

Stone chips can be simulated by single impact and/or multiple impact tests. ISO 20567-1 describes multiple impact testing; ISO 20567-2 and ISO 20567-3 describe a single impact test.

1 range
This document specifies a method for assessing the impact resistance of automotive finishes and other coatings to a wedge body projected onto the surface under test to simulate the impact of stone.
