1.1 This test standard covers equipment and methods for using phosphomolybdic acid (PMA) to detect gross defects and mechanical damage including wear through in metallic coatings of gold, silver, or palladium. These metals comprise the topmost metallic layers over substrates of nickel, copper, or copper alloys.

1.2 Recent reviews of porosity testing, which include those for gross defects, and testing methods can be found in the literature. , An ASTM guide to the selection of porosity and gross defect tests for electrodeposits and related metallic coatings is available as Guide B 765. Other related porosity and gross defects test standards are Test Methods B 735, B 741, B 798, B 799, B 809, and B 866, Specifications B 488, B 679,and B 689.

1.3 The values stated in SI units are the preferred units. Those in parentheses are for information only.
