Standard Test Method for Speciation of the Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) in Low VOC Content Waterborne Air-Dry Coatings by Gas Chromatograpy
|Publication Date:||10 March 2003|
|ICS Code (Physicochemical methods of analysis):||71.040.50|
This test method is for the determination of the weight percent of individual volatile organic compounds in low VOC content waterborne latex air-dry coatings. The method is intended primarily for analysis of waterborne coatings in which the material VOC content is below 5 weight percent. The method has been used successfully with higher VOC content waterborne coatings.
This method may also be used to measure the exempt volatile organic
compound content (acetone,
methyl acetate, and p-chlorobezotrifluor
Volatile compounds that are present at the 0.05 weight percent level or greater can be determined. Solid phase microextraction will detect volatile compounds at lower levels.
