    Significance and Use

    This test method indicates the ability of the emulsion to withstand mild to moderately severe winter conditions of use and storage. Generally this significance would be limited to conditions where the emulsion reaches a minimum temperature of 18°C (0°F).

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers the indication of the stability of water-in-oil emulsions when subjected to temperature cycling changes between ambient temperature and 18°C (0°F).

    1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.

    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.
