Significance and Use
4.1 This test method provides a measurement of total acidity in vinyl acetate and acetaldehyde. The results of these measurements can be used for specification acceptance.
1.1 This test method covers the determination of total acidity as acetic acid in refined vinyl acetate and acetaldehyde.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
1.3 For purposes of determining conformance of an observed value or a calculated value using this test method to relevant specifications, test result(s) shall be rounded off “to the nearest unit” in the last right-hand digit used in expressing the specification limit, in accordance with the rounding-off method of Practice E29.
1.4 For hazard information and guidance, see the supplier's Material Safety Data Sheet.
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 8.
