1.1 This test method covers the identification of crystalline pigments and extenders in liquid paint and dry paint film. It is applicable to both water-reducible and solvent-reducible paint. It also may be used to identify pigment and extender in grind paste or alone as dry powder. It is not applicable to amorphous components such as carbon black, amorphous silica, or highly processed clay.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
1.3 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. Specific hazard statements are given in Section 6.
