ASTM International (formerly The American Society for Testing and Materials), or ASTM for short, is the authority which has set standards for testing the lightfastness of pigments (in other words, the ability for a pigment to resist fading) in America. This standard has been adopted almost universally around the world to rate the lightfastness of pigments from a scale of I to V. Paints with an ASTM rating of I have an excellent lightfastness and the pigments will remain unchanged for more than 100 years. An ASTM rating of II means a very good lightfastness and pigments will remain unchanged for about 100 years. Pigments rated ASTM III or IV are said to be fugitive and are not deemed to have the necessary lightfastness for artists’s use. Derivan Artist pigments are all rated either ASTM I or II.
