Paint Particle Testing Standards

Paint particle testing standards are published by ISO, ASTM, and ANSI. The ISO 9934 series includes non-destructive testing general principles, detection media, and equipment. ANSI publishes a standard for arts and crafts materials for ink and paints. ASTM publishes standard test methods, practices, and guides on chemical analysis of zinc dust, sampling for particulate contamination by tape lift, microspectrophotometry, and evaluating on-site extraction for lead. The other ISO documents cover determination of density, sample preparation, coating powders, and viscosity determination.
