scope:

1.1 This test method covers the measurement of the retroreflective properties of high visibility pedestrian garments, such as vests, using a portable retroreflectometer that can be used in the field. The portable retroreflectometer is a hand-held instrument with a defined standard geometry that can be placed in contact with retroreflective marking material to measure the retroreflection. The measurements can be compared to minimum requirements to determine the need for replacement of the retroreflective material.

1.2 This test method is designed for measuring retroreflective marking materials that have an area equal to or greater than that of the aperture of the retroreflectometer.

1.3 This test method is intended to be used for field measurement of retroreflective marking materials, but may be used to measure the performance of materials before placing the clothing in use.

1.4 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 and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
