ASTM D 4399-90-2017 “Measuring the Conductivity of Electrophoretic Paints”

Meaning and Purpose
4.1 The conductivity of the electrophoresis bath is due to the presence of ionic substances in the electrophoresis tank, from the carrier, and the presence of impurities in the form of ionizable acids, bases, salts, or combinations of these substances. The existence of excessive ionic impurities is not conducive to the application and performance of electrophoretic paint. The test is suitable for research, production, quality control and electrophoretic bath process control.

4.2 Other relevant methods for the determination of water conductivity are described in test method D1125.
