This practice can be used by paint formulators to determine if a given paint has the ability to form a film at low temperatures. This practice can be used as an aid for determining coalescing solvent level required to form a good film. Test Method D 3793 compares the porosity of a film drawn down at room temperature to another film drawn down and cured at low temperature.
This practice provides no absolute information, rather ranking only of the selected series of paints.
This practice can provide a pass-fail situation if known acceptable and unacceptable paints are included in the test.View Less
