Standard Guide for
Determining Volatile and Nonvolatile Content of Pigments1

This standard is issued under the fixed designation D 4139; the number immediately following the designation indicates the year of
original adoption or, in the case of revision, the year of last revision. A number in parentheses indicates the year of last reapproval. A
superscript epsilon (e) indicates an editorial change since the last revision or reapproval.

1. Scope

1.1 This guide is intended to aid in the selection of the
proper ASTM test method for determining the volatile and
nonvolatile content of pigments.
NOTE 1—Test methods for determining the composition of the volatile
fraction are not covered by this guide.

1.2 The standards included are as follows:
Standard Section ASTM Designation
Inert or low hiding pigments 4.1 D 280
White pigments 4.2 D 280
Black pigments 4.3 D 280
D 1509
Aluminum and zinc pigments 4.4 D 280
D 480
Blue pigments 4.5 D 280

3. Significance and Use

3.1 The nonvolatile content of raw materials may be used to
determine the total nonvolatile content (solids) of paint and
related coatings. Such information may be useful to coatings
producers and users for the determination of the total solids.
