Standard Test Method for
Determination of the Transfer Efficiency Under Production
Conditions for Spray Application of Automotive Paints—
Weight Basis1

This standard is issued under the fixed designation D 5066; the number immediately following the designation indicates the year of
original adoption or, in the case of revision, the year of the last revision. A number in parentheses indicates the year of the last reapproval. A
superscript epsilon (e) indicates an editorial change since the last revision or reapproval.

1. Scope

1.1 This test method provides procedures for the determination
of the transfer efficiency (using a weight method) under
production conditions for in-plant spray application of automotive paints as outlined in Section 18 of EPA 450/3-88-018.

1.2 The transfer efficiency is calculated from the weight of
the paint solids were sprayed and deposited on the painted part.
The recommended approach involves painting the part directly.
Also described is an alternative approach for painting parts
covered with aluminum foil.

1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the
standard. The values given in parentheses are for information

1.4 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. Specific hazard
statements are given in
