Abstract (en)

[origin: GB2330795A] The choice of a paint according to the visual appearance of a dried test coat (14) of the paint on a surface to be painted employs a dried test coat which forms part of a combination (11) which also comprises a supporting web (10) releasably bonded to one face (15) of the dried coat (optionally by means of a release adhesive 12) and an attachment layer 16 provided on the other face of the dried coat, the film being sufficiently thin and flexible to be conformable closely with a test area of the surface to be painted and wherein the combination is pressed against the test area so that its attachment layer contacts the surface sufficiently closely to hold the dried test coat on the surface and then the supporting layer is separated from the held fried test coat to expose the test coat whereupon the visual appearance of the test coat can be assessed after which the test coat together with its attachment layer can be peeled from the surface.
