Significance and Use

3.1 fibers that are released during painting can lead to a finish that is aesthetically unacceptable.


1.1 This test method describes a procedure for determining the amount of releasable fibers transferred from a paint roller cover to a surface being painted.

1.2 This test method is applicable to pile fabric paint roller covers.

1.3 Because both the application and panel evaluation are subjective, this test method should be used only for comparative testing within one facility using one operator for each set of applications, as the end result assigned by different facilities may not agree.

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. Some specific hazards statements are given in Section 7 on Hazards.
