Standard Test Method for Polyurethane Raw Materials: Determination of Monomer and Isomers in Isocyanates

Significance and Use

5.1 This test method is used for research or for quality control to characterize isocyanates used in polyurethane products.

Scope

1.1 This test method determines the percent by weight of monomeric isomers and total monomer in crude or modified isocyanates. The test method is applicable to methylene di(phenylisocyanate) (MDI) and polymeric (methylene phenylisocyanate) (PMDI). (See Note 1.)

1.2 Units—The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use.
