Significance and Use
4.1 Although Test Method D4017 is widely used for the determination of water in paints and related materials, this method may overcome some of the variability found in the Karl Fischer method.
4.2 Control of water content is often important in controlling the performance of paints, and it is critical in determining volatile organic compound (VOC) content when VOC content is measured by difference from total volatile matter and water content as required in certain federal and state regulations.
