ASTM - E3193
Standard Test Method for Measurement of Lead (Pb) in Dust by Wipe, Paint, and Soil by Flame Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometry (FAAS)
|Publication Date:||1 January 2019|
This test method covers the determination of lead (Pb) in dust by wipe, paint, and soil collected in and around buildings and related structures by flame atomic absorption spectrophotometry (FAAS) and is derived from Test Methods D4185 and E1613. For determination of lead (Pb) and other metals in air by FAAS, see Test Method D4185.
The sensitivity, detection limit, and optimum working concentration for lead (Pb) are given in Table 1.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other values of measurement are included in this standard.
Exception-The SI and inch-pound units shown for wipe sampling data are to be individually regarded as standard for wipe sampling data (13.4.1).
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.
