Editorial Change:
 
After waterborne traffic paints are applied to a road pavement, it is important that they be sufficiently coalesced or cured so they will not be removed by rain. This practice can be used to determine the relative water wash-off resistance of waterborne traffic paints when exposed to a water spray simulated rain.

1.1 A newly applied traffic paint film may be exposed to rain of varying intensities shortly after application. Practice D 7377 describes a practice for evaluating the water wash-off resistance of traffic paints to a hard rain using a steady stream of water from a faucet at a rate of approximately 5.7 L per min. Practice D 7538 is a similar practice that describes the use of an adjustable nozzle atomizing spray device to deliver a spray of water that simulates rain rates from approximately 0.05 to 0.5 L per min. This test can be used to compare conventional and fast-dry traffic paints for their relative ability to withstand rain soon after application on roadway surfaces.
