The method used to grind a dried paint sample prior to acid digestion and measurement (by inductively coupled plasma (ICP) emission spectrometry or some other means), may affect the recovery of lead from the paint. In the study, five grinding techniques were compared. These were: (1) grinding with a glass rod at room temperature in a 50-mL centrifuge tube, (2) grinding with a glass rod at dry ice temperature in a 50-mL centrifuge tube, (3) grinding with a mortar and pestile, (4) grinding with a motorized blender, and (5) grinding with a cryogenic mill that operated at liquid nitrogen temperature.
