Standard Test Method for Scrub Resistance of Paints by Abrasion Weight Loss
|Publication Date:||6 November 1996|
|ICS Code (Paints and varnishes):||87.040|
1.1 This test method covers an accelerated procedure for determining the resistance of paints to erosion caused by scrubbing. (note: The term wet abrasion is sometimes used for scrubbing and wet abrasion resistance or scrubbability for scrub resistance). Although scrub resistance tests are intended primarily for interior coatings, they are sometimes used with exterior coatings as an additional measure of film performance.
1.2 The values stated in inch-pound 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.
