ASTM announces round robins, new standards activities

Keywords: Coatings technology, Standards

ASTM International, West Conshohocken, PA, has launched several activities related to the coatings technology industry.

Subcommittee E 12.14 on “Multi-Dimensional Characterization of Appearance,” part of Committee E 12 on color and appearance is tackling the problems involved in instrumental measurements of the appearance of high-quality surfaces. Directness of image (DoI) is valued and easily discriminated visually, but hard to achieve and difficult to measure instrumentally. All interested, are invited to join their current efforts in obtaining instrumental and visual data through a series of round-robin experiments. These data will be used by the committee to develop ASTM standards for high correlation instruments.

For membership or meeting details, contact Kevin Shanahan, ASTM international, kshanaha@astm.org

Subcommittee E 12.06, part of E 12 on color and appearance, has undergone a change of both its title and scope. Previously known as Appearance of Displays, it is now called “Image-Based Color Measurements”. The new scope is to create standards that prescribe the measurement characterization, calibration, and methodologies of digital color devices. The opportunities arising from digital imaging technology are creating needs for quantification and measurement of color and color appearance phenomenon.
