DIN 53217

Introducing DIN 53217 - Industrial Physics

DIN 53217 is a global DIN international standard for measuring the density of paints, varnishes and similar coating materials. 

There are a number of density testing methods described in the DIN 53217 series of standards, including: 

DIN 53217-2 - the pycnometer method: pycnometer testing is used for measuring and comparing densities - or specific gravities - of liquids and solids. Pycnometer bottles are typically made of glass or metal and have a ground glass stopper with a capillary tube for air bubbles to escape.  

DIN 53217-4 the hydrometer method: hydrometer testing for density involves filling a standing cylinder with your sample product for analysis. As soon as it reaches equilibrium, the measured value is taken. It’s a particularly useful approach for density testing transparent fluids with a low viscosity. 

Our DIN 53217 testing equipment

So, how can Industrial Physics improve your DIN 53217 density testing 

Fast, accurate and reliable results – our density testing solutions make your life easier. With an extensive product portfolio and a high degree of specialist knowledge, we can offer you the highest quality of density testing solutions available.   

Whether you’re in construction and need to test concrete density or you’re in inks and coatings and need to test the density of paints, look no further than Industrial Physics. We can help you find the perfect solution for calculating the density of your chosen sample. 

TQC Sheen pycnometers (specific gravity cups) 

Our range of pycnometers from our paint testing specialist brand TQC Sheen are just what you need to determine the specific gravity or density of coatings, pastes or similar liquids. They’re available in anodized aluminum and stainless steel in 100 ml and 50 ml versions and all models are supplied with a calibration certificate. 

Need DIN 53217 solutions? Get in touch

We’ve learnt a thing or two about density testing over the decades. Now Industrial Physics is recognized as a brand that likes to bring new, innovative pycnometers and hydrometers to market.  

We like to share our knowledge and we’re here to help you to answer your questions about density testing. Across the knowledgebase section of our website we publish lots of blogs on related subjects.   

For example, please have a read of this piece which asks why use specific gravity instead of density for liquid testing? Then, perhaps this blog which explores how to measure viscosity may be of interest. 

If you have any questions about DIN 53217 and how we can help you with your density testing, then please just get in touch!
