Also called crosscut test, a method for testing adhesion of a coating to a metallic substrate using pressure-sensitive tape that is applied over an X-cut in the film and removed. Adhesion is assessed by the amount of coating that is removed in the process. This standard test method is outlined in ASTM D 3359. Adhesion measured by the crosscut test is referred to as the shear (or knife) adhesion.
