A Cross Hatch Test is performed to check a paint's adherence. A series of horizontal lines are etched across a similar pattern of vertical lines. Special tape with aggressive adhesive is then applied to the pattern. As the tape is pulled off, a check is made to see if paint is removed by the tape. This will determine the strength of the bond.
