(Revised)

0. FOREWORD
0.1 This revised Indian Standard was adopted by the Indian Standards
Institution on 19 July 1962, after the draft finalized by the Paints and
Allied Products Sectional Committee had been approved by the Chemical
Division Council.
0.2 This standard was first issued in 1950 and was based largely on the
interim co-ordinated draft, compiled with the assistance of therepresenta-
tives of manufacturers and of various departments and authorities of the
Government of India, by the Co-ordinating Subcommittee of the No. 5
Standing-Committee on Specifications for Paintsand AlliedStores of the
General Headquarters, India (now Army Headquarters), Master General
of the Ordnance Branch, which was set up in 1942 and continued to
function till 1947. In the study for revision, ample consideration has been
given to compatibility of composition vis-a-vis performance tests and the
examination of all other anomalies. The present revision incorporates
all changes found necessary after the study and the results of
experience gained in the use of the earlier version of the standard during
the last decade.
0.2.1 Full alignment of JSS 3006 Specification- for Paint, PFU,
Priming, Red-lead, Nonsetting, Brushing, issued by the Department of
Standardization, Ministry of Defence, Government of India, has also
been achieved with this Indian Standard as it fully covers the require-
ments prescribed in JSS 3006.
0.3 This standard is one of a series of Indian Standard specifications on
ready mixed paint primers. Other specifications published so far in the
series are:

0.4 Wherever a reference to any Indian Standard appears in this speci&


cation, it shall be taken as a reference to the latest version of thestandard.
0.5 For the purpose of deciding whether a particular requirement of this
standard is complied with, the final value, observed or calculated, ex-
pressing the result of a test or analysis, shall be rounded off in accordance
with IS : 2-1960 Rules for Rounding Off Numerical Values (Revised). The
number of significant places retained in the rounded off value should be
the same as that ~of the specified value in thisstandard.
0.6 This standard is intended chiefly to cover the technical provisions
relating to ready mixed paint, brushing, red lead, nonsetting, primer, and
it does not include all the necessary provisions of a contract,
