Abstract:

Four NIST laboratories held a Workshop on Advanced Methods and Models for Appearance of Coatings and Coated Objects on May 20, 1996 to help NIST researchers better understand industry's needs. The four NIST laboratories are Building and Fire Research Laboratory (BFRL), Information Technology Laboratory (ITL), Manufactuing Engineering Laboratory (MEL) and Physics Laboratory (PL). Using coatings and coated products as a model system, industry representatives presented coating appearance-measurement issues, NIST researchers described their proposal for a systems approach to advance the science of appearance measurements, and, in an open forum discussion, workshop attendees provided feedback on the ideas presented and additional recommendations.
