Historical (view previous versions of standard)
Significance and Use
5.1 The test method is suitable for the development, specification and quality control testing of fluorescent and non-fluorescent coatings that are intended to be inspected for defects under Specification E2501 illumination.
1.3 This test method is intended as a companion to Specification E2501 to support the development and specification of industrial coatings that are used in a system for detection of coating defects when inspected with the Specification E2501 light source. This test method establishes a quantitative measure of the optical property of a coating that correlates to its ability to enhance defect contrast under the specified inspection light source.
