ASTM Standard helps determine open time for latex paint.
Press Release Summary:
Apr 01, 2011 - Developed by Subcommittee D01.42 on Architectural Coatings, ASTM D7488 provides means of determining the time available in which paint can be worked into previously painted area. Open time is a key performance property for coatings, particularly for brush applications. According to Carol Hawkins, a scientist with Dow Chemical Co., and chairman of D01.42, as we move away from using solvents in coatings, it is important to develop a test method that formulators can use to determine open time.
