ASTM-D7377 › Standard Practice for Evaluating the Water Wash-Off Resistance of Traffic Paints using a Water Faucet
Show Complete Document History
The following bibliographic material is provided to assist you with your purchasing decision:
1.1 A traffic paint film freshly applied to a roadway, air strip, or parking lot may be exposed to rain of varying intensities shortly after application. This practice was designed to determine the relative water wash-off resistance of an applied traffic paint film under controlled laboratory conditions using a water faucet to simulate a heavy rain. This laboratory practice can also be used to compare conventional and fast-dry waterborne traffic paints and the effects of binders and other components in traffic for their relative ability to withstand a heavy rain soon after application.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
1.3 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.
