1.1 This test method covers the instrumental measurement of the luminance ratio of a fluorescent coating or sheet sample when illuminated by a narrow band source.
1.2 This test method is generally applicable to any coating or sheeting material having combined fluorescent and reflective properties, where the fluorescence is activated by 405 nm light.
1.3 This test method is intended as a companion to Specification E2501 to support the development and specification of industrial coatings that are used in a system for detection of coating defects when inspected with the Specification E2501 light source. This test method establishes a quantitative measure of the optical property of a coating that correlates to its ability to enhance defect contrast under the specified inspection light source.
1.4 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
1.5 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
