Significance and Use
These test methods are suitable for quality control, as specification tests, and for research. The acid and alkalinity numbers indicate the extent of a reaction with acids. The results are measures of batch-to-batch uniformity and may be used as correction factors in calculating hydroxyl number.
1.1 These test methods measure the acidic and basic constituents in polyols and other materials of high acidity or alkalinity that are soluble in mixtures of toluene and ethyl alcohol. These test methods do not apply to polyethers. (See Note 1.)
1.2 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.
