    Significance and Use

    Moisture content of the cellulose ester can be used to estimate the dry weight of the cellulose ester. Since cellulose esters are desiccants, their moisture content can vary greatly depending on storage.

    1. Scope

    1.1 These test methods cover procedures for testing cellulose acetate.

    1.2 The test procedures appear in the following sections:
