This specification designates woods to be used as panels in weathering tests of coatings such as solvent-borne or water-borne paints. Different wood species shall be considered for testing due to their wide variations in the anatomy and density. Wood species materials for test panels include western red cedar, white pine and Ponderosa pine, southern pine, redwood, and Douglas fir. Wood panel characteristics such as weight per volume, wood character, panel thickness, surface smoothness, relative humidity, and growth rings density shall be in accordance with the specification.
