Significance and Use
This test method may be used in quality control laboratories when the repeated analysis of titanium dioxide in similar paints may be required. Reagents and time are kept to a minimum when this test method is used in place of wet chemical analysis such as in Test Methods D 1394. However, reproducibility and repeatability are not as good as in Test Methods D 1394.
1.1 This test method covers the atomic absorption (AA) analysis of titanium dioxide content in pigments recovered from whole paint. It is applicable to quality control situations where the same type of product is repeatedly analyzed.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address 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. Specific hazard statements are given in Section 7.
