Significance and Use
Driers accelerate the drying of oil, paint, printing ink, and varnish.
These test methods are applicable to liquid driers manufactured for use in paints and related coatings.
The tests for metallic content using ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid dihydrate (EDTA) are intended for concentrated solutions of single metals; two or more metals may cause interference.
1.1 These test methods cover the test procedures to be applied to liquid paint driers used in paints and related coatings. Typical paint driers, listed in Specification D 600, are carboxylates of lead, cobalt, manganese, zinc, iron, calcium, and zirconium.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
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.
