    Abstract

    This specification covers methyl isobutyl carbinol for use in paint, varnish, lacquer, and related products. The properties of the material shall be determined in accordance with the following test methods: apparent specific gravity; color; water; acidity; nonvolatile matter; and purity.

    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 methyl isobutyl carbinol2 for use in paint, varnish, lacquer, and related products.

    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-had 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, consult supplier's Material Safety Data Sheet.
