Description of ASTM-D3450 2010
ASTM D3450 - 00(2010)e1
Standard Test Method for Washability Properties of Interior Architectural Coatings
Active Standard ASTM D3450 | Developed by Subcommittee: D01.42
Book of Standards Volume: 06.02
Significance and Use
Interior architectural paints are often discolored by dirt and other soilant materials. This test method covers the relative ease and completeness of removal of a specific soilant from such a surface by scrubbing. The greater the ease of soil removal with a minimum of film erosion, the greater the useful service life is expected to be.
Results obtained by this test method do not necessarily correlate with all types of soilants.
Semigloss finishes generally require only the nonabrasive type cleaner for good soilant removal, whereas flat paints may require the abrasive type.
1.1 This test method covers the determination of the relative ease of removing soilant discolorations from the dried film of an interior coating by washing with either an abrasive or nonabrasive cleaner.
1.2 This test method is limited to coatings having a CIE-Y reflectance of 60 % or more, as measured in accordance with Test Method E1347 .
1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
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 and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
