ASTM Coatings Committee to Develop Color Guide, Seeks Project Participants
The proposed guide will assist technicians in establishing numerical (instrumental) tolerances for color and provide standards of ideal color for raw-material suppliers, coatings producers, or pigment suppliers setting color specifications, ASTM said.
Ellen C. Carter, a consultant with Minolta Corp., is serving as chairman of the ASTM Committee D01 task group that will develop the standard. The guide will provide a "how-to" road map to the approximately 12 ASTM standards for color specifications, Carter said.
The D01 task group is inviting interested parties to discuss a first draft of the guide at the Committee D01 meeting scheduled for Jan. 11-14, 2004, in Fort Lauderdale, FL.
