Standard Practice for Fluorescent UV-Condensation Exposures of Paint and Related Coatings
|Publication Date:||1 June 2011|
|ICS Code (Paints and varnishes):||87.040|
This practice covers the selection of test conditions for accelerated exposure testing of coatings and related products in fluorescent UV and condensation devices conducted according to Practices G151 and G154. This practice also covers the preparation of test specimens, and the evaluation of test results. Table 1 describes commonly used test conditions.
NOTE 1-Previous versions of this practice referenced fluorescent UV devices described by Practice G53, which described very specific equipment designs. Practice G53 has been withdrawn and replaced by Practice G151, which describes performance criteria for all exposure devices that use laboratory light sources, and by Practice G154, which gives requirements for exposing nonmetallic materials in fluorescent UV devices.
NOTE 2-ISO 11507:1997 also describes fluorescent UV-condensation exposures of paints and coatings.
