ASTM WK44633

    Revision of E2275 - 13 Standard Practice for Evaluating Water-Miscible Metalworking Fluid Bioresistance and Antimicrobial Pesticide Performance

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: E2275 - 14

    Developed by Subcommittee: E35.15 | Committee E35 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    While reviewing E2275, a member of E.35.15 discovered that the synthetic hard water reference listed in 2.2 does not exist and is likely to be a typographical error carried over from one or both of the legacy methods D3946 and E686 from which E2275 was derived, or it is a deleted AOAC method. The correct reference is AOAC 960.09 Germicidal and Detergent Sanitizing Action of Disinfectants, in which a recipe for synthetic hard water is provided.
