    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This test method provides for the qualitative and quantitative visual determination of the hiding power of a test paint relative to that of a comparison paint.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D01 on Paint and Related Coatings, Materials, and Applications, this test method was withdrawn in June 2018. This standard is being withdrawn without replacement due to the unworkable method used to obtain any useful information.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method provides for the qualitative and quantitative visual determination of the hiding power of a test paint relative to that of a comparison paint.

    1.2 This test method describes only a brushout application procedure in specific detail, but its concepts are valid for other methods of application as well.

    1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

    1.4 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.
