Standard Guide for Evaluation of Coatings Applied to Plastics (Withdrawn 2016)

Significance and Use

This guide is designed to set up a series of screening tests that will indicate the performance level to be expected of a coating or coating system on a given plastic substrate.

Plastic substrates vary widely in their acceptance characteristics for a given coating.

Note 1—Not all tests apply to all plastics.

Surface cleaning or preparation prior to application of the coating can be critical to the proper performance of the coating.


1.1 This guide is intended for the evaluation of clear and pigmented coatings designed for use on rigid or semirigid plastic substrates. Coated film and sheeting are not covered by this guide.

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.
