Cross SensitivityOther aromatics (toluene, xylene) are
retained in the pre-layer causing a reddish
brown discoloration. If the toluene or xylene
concentrations are too high the entire pre-
layer up to the indicating layer is discolored
making a benzene measurement impossible.
Petroleum hydrocarbons, alcohols and esters
do not affect the indication.
