    Abstract

    This specification establishes the properties and requirements for ethylene glycol for use in the preparation of surface coatings. The material shall be appropriately sampled and tested, and shall conform to the following specified requirements: apparent specific gravity; color (Pt-Co units); distillation range (initial boiling point and dry point); water content; acidity as acetic acid; diethylene glycol content; and iron content.

    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 ethylene glycol for use in the preparation of surface coatings.

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

    1.3 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.

    1.4 For specific hazard information and guidance, consult the supplier's Material Safety Data Sheet.
