Active Standard: D2027 / D2027M - 13
The implementation of Low Sulfur Diesel Fuels and the general changes within fuel industries and manufacturing processes has driven a noticed change in cutter properties and availabilities. Three aspects of Standard D2027/D2027M-10 have been determined by Subcommittee D04.40 to need review/revision. The aspects will be balloted separately. This item is the first of the three aspects: Replacing the Tag Open-Cup Flash Point with the DOT recognized Pensky Martin Closed Cup test. Surveys were conducted and input solicitated to determine appropriate ranges based on current MC cutback data. Table 1 displays the recommended PMCC minimum values. This is the only section for review for this ballot item.
