Cross Sensitivity
Other 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.
