    Significance and Use

    4.1 The results from this determination are useful in determining the suitability of adhesives in applications where the odor level associated with the end use is critical.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method describes a procedure for evaluating the odor of adhesives. It is intended to replace Federal Standard 175A, Method 4051.

    1.2 This test method provides a means of comparing the odor of an adhesive sample to a reference sample. It is not intended to give an absolute value for the odor of a sample. It can be used for wet or dry samples.

    1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.

    Note 1Warning: Do not use this test method with adhesives containing hazardous components such as solvent residues and unreacted monomeric materials.

    1.4 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. See Note 1 for specific precautionary statements.
