Standard Practice for Sampling Liquid Paints and Related Pigmented Coatings

Significance and Use

Samples are taken from batches, lots, and shipments of paint in order to determine their uniformity and compliance with specification requirements. It is very important that these samples be of convenient and economical size and that they be representative of the batch of paint at the time it was filled into shipping or storage containers.

The time and effort necessary to ensure that the sample is representative of the original material will be repaid in reduction of laboratory work and elimination of possible rejections of acceptable material.

Scope

1.1 This practice describes methods of taking representative samples of fluid paint or pigmented coating products from containers of any type.

1.2 Two ISO standards, ISO 1513 and ISO 15528, cover the details and equipment for sampling of liquid paints and associated materials in much greater detail than this standard. The reader is referred to those standards for more information

1.3 The sampling of dry powder paints, clear coatings, mixed solvents, and nonpigmented materials of any type is not covered in this procedure.

1.4 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

1.5 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.
