    ASTM D1832

    Significance and Use

    The magnitude of the peroxide number is an indication of the quantity of oxidizing constituents present. Deterioration of petroleum wax results in the formation of peroxides and other oxygen-carrying compounds. The peroxide number measures those compounds that will oxidize potassium iodide.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers the determination of the peroxide number of petroleum wax.

    1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

    1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
