    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    1.1 This test method covers an instrumental method for the CIE (Commission International de l'Eclairage) tristimulus measurement of the color of near-clear liquid samples. The measurement is converted to color ratings in the platinum-cobalt system.

    1.2 This test method has been found applicable to the color measurement of clear, liquid samples, free of haze, with nominal platinum cobalt color values in the 0 to 30 range. It is applicable to nonfluorescent liquids with light absorption characteristics similar to those of the platinum cobalt color standard solutions. Test Methods D1686, D2108, and E450 deal with the visual and instrumental measurement of near-clear liquids.

    1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, 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.
