ASTM - D1209
Standard Test Method for Color of Clear Liquids (Platinum-Cobalt Scale)
|Publication Date:||15 May 2005|
|ICS Code (Paints and varnishes):||87.040|
This test method describes a procedure for the visual measurement of the color of essentially light colored liquids (Note 1). It is applicable only to materials in which the color-producing bodies present have light absorption characteristics nearly identical with those of the platinum-cobalt color standards used.
NOTE 1-A procedure for estimating color of darker liquids, described for soluble nitrocellulose base solutions, is given in Guide D365.
For purposes of determining conformance of an observed or a calculated value using this test method to relevant specifications, test result(s) shall be rounded off "to the nearest unit" in the last right-hand digit used in expressing the specification limit, in accordance with the rounding-off method of Practice E29.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
For specific hazard information, see the Material Safety Data Sheet.
