Standard Specification for Artists’ Pastels
|Publication Date:||1 June 2020|
This specification establishes requirements for composition, performance, and labeling of artists' pastels.
This specification includes requirements for identification and lightfastness.
Pastel specimens are exposed to both natural daylight through window glass and window glass-filtered simulated daylight radiation to determine the lightfastness category for each pastel.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses after SI units are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
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.
