    Significance and Use

    This test method provides a procedure to identify the fatty acids present in the vehicle of a paint.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers the identification of oils and oil acids in vehicles that have been separated from solvent-reducible paints. The test method is based on a gas chromatographic technique (of the methyl esters) applicable to products containing both saturated and unsaturated, animal and vegetable, unpolymerized or partially polymerized fatty acids having 8 to 20 carbon atoms.

    1.2 This test method is not applicable to products containing fatty acids that have been polymerized or oxidized to such an extent that no characteristic monomeric fatty acids remain.

    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.
