Standard Test Method for Multiangle Color Measurement of Metal Flake Pigmented Materials
|Publication Date:||1 November 2014|
|ICS Code (Colours and measurement of light):||17.180.20|
This test method covers the instrumental requirements, standardization procedures, material standards, and parameters needed to make precise instrumental measurements of the colors of gonioapparent materials. This test method is designed to encompass gonioapparent materials; such as, automotive coatings, paints, plastics, and inks.
This test method addresses measurement of materials containing metal flake and pigments. The measurement of materials containing metal flakes requires three angles of measurement to characterize the colors of the specimen. The optical characteristics of materials containing pearlescent and interference materials are not covered by this test method.
NOTE 1-Data taken by utilizing this test method are for gonioappearance quality control purposes. This procedure may not necessarily supply appropriate data for spatial-appearance or pigment identification.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as 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.
