PROTECTION OF MATERIALS. REPORT ON THE ENQUIRY AND PROGRAMME OF WORK FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF TEST-METHODS FOR THE DETERMINATION OF THE DURABILITY OF PAINT COATINGS

The test procedures for the assessment of the quality of paints at present in use, specially as regards their service performance or durability, were not, it was thought, sufficiently speedy or accurate, and an enquiry was undertaken to ascertain the views of all Administrations. The results of this enquiry are appended and lead to the conclusion that there is an urgent need to develop test procedures which could give rapid and accurate assessment. The purpose of the Programme of Work proposed is to study methods of determining paint properties which have a bearing on durability with the view to the development of a procedure which will yield results more rapidly. The provision of improved test procedures for the quality assessment of a paint will enable the selection to be made of the best available paint for a given purpose which will lead to economy in maintenance of rolling stock and structures.
