ASTM D1849-19 Standard Test Method for Stability of Coating Packaging


The test method includes procedures for testing the packaging stability of liquid coatings by determining changes in the consistency and certain other properties of solvent or water reducible coatings when stored above a certain temperature. Test equipment includes scraper, viscometer, paint brush and test surface. Test samples should be collected from received and stored samples. The sample should be observed for any crusting, corrosion, spoilage odor, rarities or acidification, underlying rigidity, consistency and the presence of clumps or streaks in the drawn film.
