Abstract:

A simple procedure and test kit have been developed for identifying the generic type and general composition of cured or weathered paint films. The procedure includes pyrolytic and burning tests, solubility tests, and tests for the detection of such elements as chlorine, nitrogen, lead, and mercury. All the tests can be performed with simple equipment by field personnel having little or no prior laboratory experience. The procedure and test kit were proven by successfully identifying 61 weathered paints that might be encountered at Naval shore activities.
