1.1 These test methods cover the determination of specific resistance (resistivity) of liquid paints, solvents, and other fluids in the range of 0.6 to 2640 MΩ-cm.

1.2 Test Method A describes a procedure for making resistance tests with a commonly used paint application test assembly (Fig. 1 and Fig. 2).

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

1.5 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.

1.6 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.
