ASTM D 4828-94-2020 Practical Washability of Organic Coatings

Meaning and Purpose
4.1 Indoor architectural coatings can be stained with dirt or other stains during use. The test method provides a way to assess the relative ease of soil or stain removal on paint films using household generic materials. The test method includes a method to evaluate the washability and appearance changes of the film. Therefore, the formulation designer can evaluate the influence of the composition on the wash resistance of the paint. Users can also compare how easily the different paints tested remove dirt, which is recommended to be done simultaneously.
