Significance and Use
Adhesive cost is often related to the solids level (nonvolatile content).
This test method can be used to compare the nonvolatile content of various adhesives for adhesive selection and product uniformity.
This test method is suitable for quality control and research purposes.
1.1 This test method covers the determination of the nonvolatile content of aqueous adhesives, such as dextrin, starch, casein, and animal gelatin.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
1.3 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.
