This specification establishes the properties and requirements for ethyl acrylate for use in paint, varnish, lacquer, and related products. Specimens shall be sampled, undergo chemical tests, and conform accordingly to purity, water content, color, acidity, and methyl ether of hydroquinone content requirements.
This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.
1.1 This specification covers ethyl acrylate (99 % grade) for use in paint, varnish, lacquer, and related products.
1.2 The following applies to all specified limits in this standard; for purposes of determining conformance with this standard, an observed value or a calculated value 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 E 29
1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
1.4 For specification hazard information and guidance, see the Supplier's Material Safety Data Sheet for materials listed in this specification.
1.5 This standard may involve hazardous materials, operations, and equipment. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems 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. Specific hazard statements are given in 4.1.
