ASTM Paint Standards and Related Coating Standards (part 1)

ASTM's paint and related coating standards are instrumental in specifying and evaluating the physical and chemical properties of various paints and coatings that are applied to certain bulk materials to improve their surface properties.
Guides are also provided for the proper methods of applying these coatings, which also include enamels, varnishes, electroplatings, pigments, and solvents.
These paint and related coating standards help paint manufacturers and end-users in the appropriate testing and application procedures for the coating of their concern.
