Significance and Use
3.2 The residual odor characteristics can be used to judge the presence of relatively nonvolatile materials that may be associated with manufacture or contamination during distribution. Since volatile solvents and diluents are used in a wide variety of chemical processes and residual materials may affect the efficiency of such processes, this test method provides a comparative test for manufacturing control and assessing compliance with a specification.
1.1 This test method covers a comparative procedure for observing the characteristic and residual odors of volatile organic solvents and diluents to determine their odor acceptability in a solvent system.
1.5 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 4.
