Updated On: August 05, 2009
Editorial Change:
In order to calculate volatile organic content (VOC) in waterborne paints, it is necessary to know the water content. This gas chromatographic test method provides a relatively simple and direct way to determine water content.

1.1 This test method is for the determination of the total water content of waterborne paints. It has been evaluated for latex systems (styrene-butadiene, poly(vinylacetate)-acrylic, acrylic), epoxy acrylic resin systems and acrylic systems. The established working range of this test method is from 15 to 90 %. There is no reason to believe that it will not work outside of this range.
