Cross Hatch Tape Test
The cross hatch tape test is primarily intended for use in the laboratory on coatings less than 5 mils (125 microns) thick.
It uses a cross-hatch pattern rather than the X pattern.
A cutting guide or a special cross-hatch cutter with multiple preset blades is needed to make sure the incisions are properly spaced and parallel.
After the tape has been applied and pulled off, the cut area is then inspected and rated.
