|Publication Date:||1 November 2019|
|ICS Code (Occupational safety. Industrial hygiene):||13.100|
significance And Use:
4.1 To assess how photoluminescent markings perform under identical test conditions, the luminance shall be measured in accordance with this test method (see Specification E2072).
1.1 This test method covers a procedure for determining the photopic luminance of photoluminescent (phosphorescent) markings. It does not cover scotopic or mesopic measurements.
1.2 When reference is made regarding photoluminescence in the text of this test method, it implies phosphorescence.
1.3 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.
1.4 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, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
1.5 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
