    Significance and Use

    3.1 It is important to recognize that a brush can be a mixture of several chemically different filaments or bristles, or both, in several cross sections, thicknesses and lengths. The following procedures will be helpful in identifying brush composition.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This practice covers the dimensions, terminology, materials and characteristics generally considered of importance to those within, or dealing with paint brushes, and describes methods of determining these parameters. This practice is not meant to be a definitive analytical method to deformulate brushes.

    1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given 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.
