New Standard from Last Update.

NATIONAL FOREWORD

This Indian Standard (Part 2/Sec 4) which is identical with ISO 11890-2 : 2013 ‘Paints and varnishes — Determination of volatile organic compound (VOC) content — Part 2: Gas-chromatographic method’ issued by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) was adopted by the Bureau of Indian Standards on the recommendation of the Paints, Varnishes and Allied Products Sectional Committee and approval of the Chemical Division Council

Considering the importance of following the uniform practices globally, the Committee felt that it would be more convenient to prepare this standard method by adoption of ISO 11890-2 on dual number basis. This method will assist the manufacturers for controlling the quality of their products and to the consumers for testing for ensuring the material of acceptable quality.

This standard would be the Section 4 of Part 2 of the IS 101 series of Indian Standards on ‘Methods of sampling and test for paints, varnishes and related products : Part 2 Test on liquid paints (chemical examination). There are other two Indian Standards available on similar subject which are:

IS 101 (Part 2/Sec 3) : 2015 / ISO 11890-1 : 2007 Methods of sampling and test for paints, varnishes and related products : Part 2 Test on liquid paints (chemical examination), Section 3 Determination of volatile organic compound (VOC) content — Difference method

IS 101(Part 2/Sec 5) : 2015 / ISO 17895 : 2005 Methods of sampling and test for paints, varnishes and related products : Part 2 Test on liquid paints (chemical examination), Section 5 Determination of the volatile organic compound content of low-VOC emulsion paints (in-can VOC)

The text of ISO Standard has been approved as suitable for publication as an Indian Standard without deviations. Certain conventions are, however, not identical to those used in Indian Standards. Attention is particularly drawn to the following:

a) Wherever the words ‘International Standard’ appear referring to this standard, they should be read as ‘Indian Standard’.

b) Comma (,) has been used as a decimal marker, while in Indian Standards, the current practice is to use a point (.) as the decimal marker.

In this adopted standard, reference appears to certain International Standards wherein the standard atmospheric conditions to be observed are stipulated which are not applicable to tropical/subtropical countries. The applicable Standard Atmospheric Conditions for Indian conditions are 27 ± 2°C and 65 ± 5 percent, relative humidity and shall be observed while using this standard.
