Significance and Use
The nonvolatile content of paint and related coatings is useful to producers and users and to environmental and health and safety interests in comparing the coverage of competing products and in estimating the volatile organic content.
1.1 This guide is intended to aid in the selection of the proper ASTM standard for determining the volatile and nonvolatile content of paint and related coatings.
Note 1—Test methods for determining the composition of the volatile fraction are not covered by this guide.
