    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers the determination of total acidity as acetic acid, in concentrations below 0.05%, in organic compounds and hydrocarbon mixtures used in paint, varnish, and lacquer solvents and diluents. It is known to be applicable to such mixtures as low molecular weight saturated and unsaturated alcohols, ketones, ethers, esters, hydrocarbon diluents, naphtha, and other light distillate petroleum fractions.

    1.2 This standard does not purport to address the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of whoever uses this standard to consult and establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

    1.3 For specific hazard information and guidance consult supplier's Material Safety Data Sheet.
