Standard Test Methods for Use of Emulsion Polymers in Floor Polishes
|Publication Date:||10 September 1999|
|ICS Code (Rubber and plastics products in general):||83.140.01|
1.1 These test methods cover test procedures for emulsion polymers that are used in water-based floor polishes. The term "emulsion polymers" is used primarily to denote those materials produced by regular emulsion polymerization techniques, but may be extended to those polymers that are subsequently emulsified or dispersed after polymerization. Unless otherwise noted, the tests may be used for any polymer or copolymer systems. The methods appear in the following order:
Section Sampling 4 Total solids 5 pH value 6 Apparent viscosity 7 Sediment 8 Storage stability 9 Freeze-thaw stability 10 Specific gravity 11
1.2 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
