ASTM and EPA Method Testing
EPA 24 specifies multiple ASTM methods as required and acceptable processes in analyzing the following:
Optimally, testing requires 200–300 mLs of sample. We are able to handle finished products or raw materials, materials that have special curing requirements can be adapted to the method. Testing the final product is typically encouraged, because the actual values may be different from the theoretical or calculated quantities when effected by all of the product’s ingredients.
