Standard Specification for Photoluminescent (Phosphorescent) Safety Markings
|Standards number:||ASTM E2072-14|
|Keywords:||escape routes; luminance; photoluminescent safety markings|
1.1 This specification covers minimum performance requirements for newly applied photoluminescent (phosphorescent) safety materials used to provide supplemental markings of escape routes, emergency equipment, and obstructions along the escape route. (see also Test Method and Guide ).
1.2 This specification establishes minimum luminance values for photoluminescent (phosphorescent) markings.
1.3 This specification applies to all types of photoluminescent (phosphorescent) markings, including but not limited to plastics, coatings, ceramics, films, etc.
1.4 This specification does not cover potentially diminished performance due to wear and tear and aging.
1.5 This specification applies only to photoluminescent (phosphorescent) markings emitting the majority of spectral energy within the 515 to 535 nanometer range.
1.6 When reference is made regarding photoluminescence in the text of this standard, it implies phosphorescence.
1.7 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
