Sweden Releases Paints and Varnishes Standards

June 17, 2016

The Swedish Standards Institute (SIS) has released a two-part standard, regarding the determination of resistance to abrasion of paints and varnishes:

Part 1: Method with Abrasive-Paper Covered Wheels and Rotating Test Specimen (ISO 7784-1:2016)

Part 2: Method with Abrasive Rubber Wheels and Rotating Test Specimen (ISO 7784-2:2016)

These two parts of the adopted ISO standard address the method for the determining the resistance to abrasion of coatings, for which two loaded, freely rotatable but eccentrically arranged abrasive-paper covered or rubber wheels affect the coating of the rotating test specimens.

The standards were published on April 21, 2016.
