ISO/TC 35/SC 9 General test methods for paints and varnishes

International Standard


The ability of coatings to withstand wear caused by repeated cleaning operations and to withstand penetration by soiling agents is an important consideration both from a practical point of view and when comparing and rating such coatings. ISO 11998:2006 describes an accelerated method for the determination of wet-scrub resistance. With regard to the cleanability of coatings, only the method itself and not the soiling agents are specified.
