Significance and Use
4.1 Spoilage of paint in the container can result in putrefaction, lowered pH, gas formation, and decrease in viscosity. This test method provides a standard procedure for the evaluation of the resistance of emulsion paints to microbial deterioration. The results should enable: (1) the paint manufacturer to select an effective preservative and (2) the supplier of preservatives to evaluate the performance in emulsion paints of competitive and developmental preservatives.
