1.1 This test method is intended as a screening test to determine if the solids in a paint contain more than 0.5 % lead. The test described barely detects the presence of 0.4 % but gives a definite positive result at the 0.5 % level.

Note 1:  This test method may be used to detect the presence of lead at concentrations higher or lower than 0.5 % by making appropriate changes in the specimen size and reagent quantities specified.

1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

1.3 Paints giving an unexpected positive or questionable result should be analyzed quantitatively for lead, using Test Method D3335.

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. Specific hazard statements are given in Section 7.
