“Is this an industry standard for torque testing and/or correlation to impact testing?”


“We know of no such correlation between impact and torque testing requirements. Although the forces of torque are similar to impact, there are several other powder coating functional properties that can be similar to torque. For instance, surface hardness (rated in pencil hardness), adhesion, abrasion resistance, mar resistance, and others can all have an effect on the coated surface when a fastener is torqued to a known standard.”
