Organization: ASTM
Publication Date: 1 November 2006
Status: inactive
Page Count: 2
ICS Code (Paints and varnishes): 87.040
scope:

This test method covers the determination of the comparative coalescence of a series of latex paints by determining the porosity of films dried at standard and at low temperature. Porosity is evaluated with a penetrating medium as in Test Method D 3258.

The texture of the film, which can affect cleanup, will influence the results of the test. Stain applied to a high-hiding paint will not lower the reflectance as much as the same stain applied to a low-hiding paint of equal porosity. These points must be considered in comparing the different paints.

This method should be used only for comparative testing within one laboratory, as the numerical results obtained by different laboratories do not usually agree.

The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.

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.
