    Abstract

    This specification covers the properties and requirements for 50 % uninhibited formaldehyde and 37 % uninhibited and inhibited formaldehyde. Specimens shall be suitably sampled and tested, and shall meet the specified values of the following properties: apparent specific gravity; formaldehyde content; acidity; color (Pt-Co scale); iron content; methanol content; and appearance.

    This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers 50 % uninhibited formaldehyde and 37 % uninhibited and inhibited formaldehyde.

    1.2 The following applies to all specified limits in this standard; for purposes of determining conformance with this standard, an observed value or a calculated value shall be rounded off “to the nearest unit” in the last right-hand digit used in expressing the specification limit, in accordance with the rounding-off method of Practice E29.

    1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

    1.4 For specific hazard information and guidance, see the supplier's Material Safety Data Sheet for materials listed in this specification.
