This test method covers the determination of the purity of acrylate,
ethyl acrylate, n-butyl
acrylate, and 2-ethylhexyl acrylate by gas chromatography and, in
addition, provides a means for
measuring certain impurities such as alcohols and other esters. Water
and acidity are measured by
other appropriate ASTM procedures and the results are used to
normalize the chromatographic values.
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 E 29.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The
values given in parentheses
are for information only.
For hazard information and guidance, see the supplier's Material
Safety Data Sheet.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems,
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.
Specific hazard statements are given in Section 7.
