Paints and varnishes - Laboratory method for determination of release of regulated dangerous substances from coatings in intermittent contact with water

General information

50.60     Nov 24, 2022



European Norm



This document specifies a laboratory method to determine the leaching behaviour of substances from coatings into water over defined time intervals.
The release of substances from coatings under natural conditions cannot be determined with this method.
This method can be applied to renders, when condition (4) of the Scope of CEN/TS 16637-1 is fulfilled.
(4) It is assumed that intermittent contact with water (e.g. exposure to rainwater) is tested — by convention — as permanent contact. For some coatings, (e.g. some renders with organic binders according to EN 15824) in intermittent contact to water, physical and chemical properties might be altered in permanent contact with water. These products are not covered by the Technical Specification CEN/TS 16637-1 since the test method in CEN/TS 16637-2 is not appropriate for these construction products.
