1.1 This test method covers a procedure for the pigment content determination of water-based paints. It is applicable only to pigments that do not decompose or lose weight at temperatures below 500°C. Such pigments include most metal oxides, silicates, and a majority of anhydrous inorganic salts.

1.2 Many water-based paints contain pigments and organic colorants that lose water of hydration or decompose at this temperature. The residual ash should be carefully inspected for changes in color or texture that could indicate a pigment alteration and hence lead to erroneous results. Caution should therefore be exercised when applying this test method to samples containing unknown pigment compositions.

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

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, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

1.5  This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
