Revision Date: July 14, 2010
Updated On: July 22, 2010
Editorial Change:
The permissible level of heavy metals in certain coatings is specified by governmental regulatory agencies. This test method provides a fully documented procedure for determining low concentrations of mercury present in both water and solvent-reducible coatings to determine compliance.

This test method covers the determination of the content of mercury in the range between 10 and 1000 ppm (mg/kg) present in liquid coatings, coatings vehicles, or in dried films obtained from previously coated substrates. There is no reason to believe that higher levels could not be determined by this test method, provided that appropriate dilutions and adjustments in specimen size and reagent quantities are made.
