Oil Content

In last issue we have seen how solid contents of resin can be calculated with the help of specific gravity of resin solution.

If we know specific gravity of 100% solid resin.

Similarly we can find out relation between oil content and oil length in oleoresinous varnishes if we know density of the oil.

Oil length = US gallons oil per 100 lb resin

Based on an oil density of 0.94 or 7.8 lb/gallon

1 US gallon = 8.345 lbs 0.94 7.8 lb

=

1 1 Gallon 0.94 7.8 lb

=

#### 1 8.345 lb
