ASTM D1652 - 11 Standard Test Method for Epoxy Content of Epoxy Resins


Source: ASTM International

The epoxy content of epoxy resins is an important variable in determining their reactivity and the properties of coatings made from them. These test methods may be used to determine the epoxy content of manufactured epoxy resins and confirm the stated epoxy content of purchased epoxy resins.

1. Scope

1.1 This test method covers the procedure for manual and automatic titration of epoxy resins for the quantitative determination of the percent epoxide content from 0.1 – 26 % epoxide.

1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.

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. For specific hazard statements, see Section 6.
