Multi-impact testing for stone-chip resistance: EN ISO 20567 1 revised

Grit, road metal and other materials can damage automotive coatings so that individual layers come off or the whole coating delaminates from the substrate. Stone chipping can be simulated by means of single- and/or multi-impact tests. ISO 20567 1 has now been revised.
