ASTM D333-2021 Standard Guide for Clear and Pigmented Lacquers

Meaning and Purpose
3.1 These test methods are designed to compile and provide screening tests to evaluate clear and pigmented lacquers used in different coating operations.

3.2 Each coating system can consist of a simple one-coat operation to a multi-coat finishing system.

3.3 Substrates can be diverse, ferrous and non-ferrous metals, plastic or wood, which can affect the performance of a given coating system.

3.4 chemical or physical cleaning base material is one of the important and key aspects of coating system performance.

3.5 The results of the various tests may not all be useful in assessing the performance of the different types of coating systems used on many different substrates.

Scope of
1.1 These test methods cover procedures for testing lacquers and lacquer coatings. Table 1 lists the included test methods.

Note 1: according to the term D16, paint is defined as based on dissolved in organic solvent in the synthesis of thermoplastic film forming materials and mainly by the solvent evaporation drying coating combination. Typical lacquer includes based on nitrocellulose lacquer and other cellulose derivatives, vinyl resin, acrylic resin, etc.

Note 2: the paint can be in such a variety of conditions on the coating on the surface of many different, and the dry film could be affected by so many wear and exposed, to be through a single selection of test method and the numerical results to ensure that the required performance. Technicians in the field of lacquer technology can find partial guarantees of obtaining the required quality in various types of lacquers by carefully selecting the methods covered in this paper and intelligently interpreting their results.

Note 3: The ultimate aim is to remove all experimental procedures from test method D333 and establish them as a guide for choosing a lacquer test method and possibly interpreting its results. For the time being, a number of tests remain in Test Method D333 that are too short or currently inappropriate to be established under a separate ASTM name.
