ASTM - D4287
Standard Test Method for High-Shear Viscosity Using a Cone/Plate Viscometer
|Publication Date:||10 November 2000|
|ICS Code (Paints and varnishes):||87.040|
This test method covers the determination of the viscosity of paints, varnishes, and related products at a rate of shear of 12 000 s−1.
Paints and varnishes that dry very rapidly may not give reproducible results with this test method. Measurements made at elevated temperatures may also give poor precision due to loss of volatiles and to drying.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
