This test method is intended to assess susceptibility of flat two dimensional vinyl films and other solid polymer products as well as products that may directly contact vinyl to pink-staining by the actinomycete bacteria Streptomyces species. This test method may not be suitable for highly textured or porous substrates.
This test method is not suitable for evaluating darkpigmented test samples.
A knowledge of microbiological techniques is recommended for these procedures.
