DMS-8100, Structural Steel Paints - Formula

Sampling, Testing, and Inspection
Sampling and Testing
The Department will sample raw materials and finished paint in accordance with Test
Method "Tex-801-B, Testing Coatings and Related Materials" and will test in accordance
with Manual of Testing Procedures). To establish or verify performance, the Construction
Division, Materials and Pavement Section (CST/M&P) will perform any or all tests
required. In case of variance, the Department's tests will govern.
Unless otherwise noted, the Department will inspect and sample these paints at the
manufacturing or project site.
Address any questions to the Texas Department of Transportation, Construction Division,
Materials and Pavements Section (CP51), 125 East 11th Street, Austin, TX 78701-2483.
Materials to be Tested
Inspect and test all products that are required to meet these Specifications and purchased
either by the Department or by Contractors for use on projects under the Department's
jurisdiction.
Base final acceptance or rejection on the following:
♦ results of tests on raw material samples and finished products taken during production or
♦ tests performed on finished products as soon as practical after their arrival at the
shipping destination.
The Department will test all finished products and raw materials and inspect the
manufacturing process or designate a commercial laboratory to do so.
Test Methods
This Specification uses the following:
♦ Acid Number - ASTM "D 1639, Standard Test Method for Acid Value of Organic
Coating Materials"
♦ Amine Value - ASTM "D 1652, Standard Test Methods for Epoxy Content of Epoxy
Resins"
♦ Boiling Range - ASTM "D 850, Standard Test Method for Distillation of Industrial
Aromatic Hydrocarbons and Related Materials"
♦ Color - ASTM "D 1544, Standard Test Method for Color of Transparent Liquids
(Gardner Color Scale)"
♦ Consistency (Viscosity) - ASTM "D 562, Standard Test Method for Consistency of
Paints Measuring Krebs Unit (KU) Viscosity Using a Stormer-Type Viscometer"
