NIOSH 5035 (Issue 1)

SUPER ABSORBENT POLYMERS

This method uses a ICP-AES or ASS technique to measure Sanwet IM-3500 in air at a diaper manufacturing plant. Work with perchloric acid should be performed only in a perchloric acid hood. Super absorbent polymers in air can be determined by collection on PVC filters, treatment with hot HCl and measurement of sodium by flame AAS.

Analysis Type (Application Method): ICP-AES or AAS
