4.1 The oil absorption value obtained by this test method gives information about the vehicle demand of the pigment when it is used in a pigment paste. Oil absorption values can be used to characterize pigments or batches of a given pigment.
4.2 This test method differs from Test Method D1483 in that D1483 involves only a gentle stirring and folding of the pigment, whereas this test method requires a thorough rubbing action. Because the end points are different, the values obtained from the two test methods generally differ.View Less
