(2)Fire-resistance rating. The fire-resistance rating of a fire-resistive coating shall be determined by ASTM Designation E 119-98, “Standard Test Methods for Fire Tests of Building Construction Materials”.
Gloss determination. The gloss of a coating shall be determined by ASTM Designation D 523-89 (1999), “Standard Test Method for Specular Gloss” (see section 2, flat coating, non-flat coating, non-flat-high gloss coating, quick-dry enamel).
Metal content of coatings. The metallic content of a coating shall be determined by SCAQMD Method 318-95, “Determination of Weight Percent Elemental Metal in Coatings by X-Ray Diffraction”, SCAQMD “Laboratory Methods of Analysis for Enforcement Samples” (see section 2, metallic pigmented coating.)
Acid content of coatings. The acid content of a coating shall be determined by ASTM Designation D 1613-96, “Standard Test Method for Acidity in Volatile Solvents and Chemical Intermediates Used in Paint, Varnish, Lacquer and Related Products” (see section 2, pre-treatment wash primer).
Drying times. The set-to-touch and dry-to-recoat times of a coating shall be determined by ASTM Designation D 1640-95, “Standard Methods for Drying, Curing, or Film Formation of Organic Coatings at Room Temperature” (see section 2, quick-dry enamel and quick-dry primer, sealer and undercoater). The tack-free time of a quick-dry enamel coating shall be determined by the Mechanical Test Method of ASTM D 1640-95.
Surface chalkiness. The chalkiness of a surface shall be determined using ASTM Designation D 4214-98, “Standard Test Methods for Evaluating the Degree of Chalking of Exterior Paint Films” (see section 2, specialty primer, sealer and undercoater).
Exempt compounds-siloxanes. Exempt compounds that are cyclic, branched or linear, completely methylated siloxanes, shall be analyzed as exempt compounds for compliance with this section by BAAQMD Method 43, “Determination of Volatile Methylsiloxanes in Solvent–Based Coatings, Inks, and Related Materials”, BAAQMD Manual of Procedures, Volume III, adopted November 6, 1996.
Exempt compounds-parachlorobenzotrifluoride (PCBTF). The exempt compound parachlorobenzotrifluoride shall be analyzed as an exempt compound for compliance with this section by BAAQMD Method 41, “Determination of Volatile Organic Compounds in Solvent-Based Coatings and Related Materials Containing Parachlorobenzotrifluoride”, BAAQMD Manual of Procedures, Volume III, adopted December 20, 1995.
Exempt compounds. The content of compounds exempt under EPA Method 24 shall be analyzed by SCAQMD Method 303-91 (Revised 1993), “Determination of Exempt Compounds”, found in SCAQMD “Laboratory Methods of Analysis for Enforcement Samples”.
