This test method is the procedure of choice for determining the volatile content in aerosol coatings under specified test conditions modeled after Method 354 . The inverse value, nonvolatile, is used to determine the weight percent solids content. This information is useful to the paint producer, user, and to environmental interests for determining the grams of volatile organic compounds per gram of solids emitted from aerosol cans.
