    1. Rationale

    This is a renewal of D5517, the standard test method for determining extractability of metals from art materials. This standard is valuable for determining the bioavailability of metals in organic colorants. It provides a sound test method that has had extensive peer review and repeated testing to confirm its validity. This standard is needed for manufacturers to have a test method that provides data on metals in pigments.
