Revision Date: December 23, 2010
Updated On: February 02, 2011
Editorial Change:
Samples are taken from batches, lots, and shipments of paint in order to determine their uniformity and compliance with specification requirements. It is very important that these samples be of convenient and economical size and that they be representative of the batch of paint at the time it was filled into shipping or storage containers.

The time and effort necessary to ensure that the sample is representative of the original material will be repaid in reduction of laboratory work and elimination of possible rejections of acceptable material.

1.1 This practice describes methods of taking representative samples of fluid paint or pigmented coating products from containers of any type.

1.2 Two ISO standards, ISO 1513 and ISO 15528, cover the details and equipment for sampling of liquid paints and associated materials in much greater detail than this standard. The reader is referred to those standards for more information.

1.3 The sampling of dry powder paints, clear coatings, mixed solvents, and nonpigmented materials of any type is not covered in this procedure.
