Significance and Use
5.1 Latex paints are sometimes applied over substrates that contain a high level of water soluble salts that result in efflorescence. This practice evaluates a coating’s vulnerability to efflorescence.
1.2 This practice is designed primarily to relate efflorescence originating in the substrate to the deposit appearing on the surface of latex paints. This practice relates chiefly to the painting of masonry-type substrates such as concrete block, brick, mortar, stucco, poured concrete and similar materials.
