This specification covers methyl acrylate for use in paint, varnish, lacquer, and related products. Methyl acrylate shall be tested for purity, water content, color, acidity, and methyl ether of hydroquinone content, and shall conform to the requirements of the specification. Methyl acrylate shall be stored in amber bottles or protect from light by other means to aid in preventing polymerization. Test methods, sampling, and packaging shall be in accordance with ASTM standard methods.
This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.
1.1 This specification covers methyl acrylate (99 % grade) for use in paint, varnish, lacquer, and related products.
1.2 The following applies to all specified limits in this standard; for purposes of determining conformance with this standard, an observed value or a calculated value shall be rounded off “to the nearest unit” in the last right-hand digit used in expressing the specification limit, in accordance with the rounding-off method of Practice E29.
1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
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. For specific hazard information see Section 4.
1.5 For specific hazard information and guidance, see the supplier's Material Safety Data Sheet for materials listed in this specification.
