Standard Practice for Determining by Exterior Exposure Tests the Susceptibility of Paint Films to Microbiological Attack
|Publication Date:||1 January 1996|
1.1 This practice provides guidelines for determining the susceptibility of paint films to microbiological attack on exterior exposure. While it is recognized that various organisms may occur on an exposed coating, the specific types of organisms are mainly of academic interest. The degree to which microbiological discoloration occurs is the primary concern.
1.2 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, 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.
