Standard
ASTM F1854-15
Standard Test Method for Stereological Evaluation of Porous Coatings on Medical Implants
Scope/Abstract
1.1 This test method covers stereological test methods for characterizing the coating thickness, void content, and mean intercept length of various porous coatings adhering to nonporous substrates.

1.2 A method to measure void content and intercept length at distinct levels ("Tissue Interface Gradients") through the porous coating thickness is outlined in 9.4.
Extent of Recognition
