Significance and Use
Since the desired specifications and compositions of soluble nitrocellulose base solutions vary greatly, these methods are used to establish whether limits that shall be as agreed upon between the producer and the user have been met.
1.1 This guide covers the testing of soluble nitrocellulose base solutions that are made by dispersing various kinds and concentrations of soluble nitrocellulose (cellulose nitrate) in various solvent mixtures.
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.
