Publication Date: 1 June 2016
Status: active
Page Count: 4
ICS Code (Aromatic hydrocarbons): 71.080.15
significance And Use:

5.1 This test method can be used for determining polymer concentrations in styrene monomer.

5.2 This test method will not detect dimers and trimers.

5.3 This test method can be used... View More

scope:

1.1 These test methods cover the determination of the polymer content of styrene monomer. It should be noted, however, that dimers and trimers are not measured by these test methods.

1.2 Test Method A, which is based on the use of a spectrophotometer or photometer, is intended for the quantitative determination of the polymer content of styrene monomer in concentrations up to 15 mg/kg. Samples containing more than 15 mg/kg of polymer must be suitably diluted before measurement.

1.3 Test Method B is a rapid visual procedure that is intended for the approximate evaluation of polymer to a maximum concentration of 1.0 mass %. Samples having a polymer content of 1.0 mass % or greater should be suitably diluted prior to measurement.

1.4 In determining the conformance of the test results using this method to applicable specifications, results shall be rounded off in accordance with the rounding-off method of Practice E29.

1.5 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

1.6 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, 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. For specific hazard statements, see Section 9.
