    Significance and Use

    3.1 Any effects such as color change, blistering. loss of adhesion, softening, or embrittlement are observed and noted.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This practice covers the determination of the resistance to failure, in an accelerated manner, of organic finishes when immersed in a detergent solution.

    1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values in parentheses are for information only.

    1.3  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.
