1. Scope *
1.1 This test method covers the determination of the acid
content of ethylene-acrylic acid (EAA) copolymers containing
2.5 to 25 weight % of acrylic acid.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the
standard. The values given in parenthesis are for information
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the
safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the
responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Specific hazard
statements are given in Section 8.
