Significance and Use
The nonvolatile content of raw materials may be used to determine the total nonvolatile content (solids) of paint and related coatings. Such information may be useful to coatings producers and users for the determination of the total solids available for film formation and for the estimation of the volatile organic content.
1.1 This practice is intended to serve as a guide to the selection of the proper ASTM test method for determining the volatile and nonvolatile content of cellulosics, emulsions, resin solutions, shellac, and varnishes. Note 1 - Standards for determining the composition of the volatile fraction are not covered by this practice.
1.2 The standards referenced in the practice are as follows:
|Cellulosics||D 871 |
|Resin Solutions||D 1259 |
|Shellac||D 29 |
|Varnishes||D 115 |
1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
