Standard Specification for Non-Reinforced Liquid Coating Encapsulation Products for Leaded Paint in Buildings
|Publication Date:||10 May 2000|
|ICS Code (Paints and varnishes):||87.040|
1.1 This specification covers minimum material performance requirements and laboratory test procedures for non-reinforced liquid coating encapsulation products (single or multiple-coat systems) for leaded paint in buildings. The test methods and practices included are listed in Table 1. Specifications for reinforced liquid coating encapsulation products are provided in Specification E1797.
1.2 This specification does not address the selection of an encapsulation product for specific use conditions. Specific use conditions may require performance values other than those stated in this specification. See Guide E1796.
1.3 This specification does not cover the use of encapsulation products on industrial steel structures nor on residential coated metal surfaces because no corrosion control requirements are included.
1.4 This specification applies to any non-reinforced liquid applied product, designed to reduce human exposure to lead in paints, which relies primarily on adhesion for attachment to the surface.
1.5 The laboratory testing specified in this specification shall be performed on the entire non-reinforced liquid coating encapsulation product system, whether single or multiple coat, as applied in the field. A non-reinforced liquid coating encapsulation product shall be comprised of all principal components in the system, including the base and top coats and primer, if specified, for field application. Except for dry abrasion testing, where specialty primers maybe used for flash rust resistance, primers shall not be used solely for product performance testing in accordance with this specification.
1.6 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
1.7 The results of the test methods included in this specification will not necessarily predict field performance.
1.8 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.
