Samples are taken from batches, lots, and shipments of paint in order to determine their uniformity and compliance with specification requirements. It is very important that these samples be of convenient and economical size and that they be representative of the batch of paint at the time it was filled into shipping or storage containers.
The time and effort necessary to ensure that the sample is representative of the original material will be repaid in reduction of laboratory work and elimination of possible rejections of acceptable material.View Less
