    Abstract

    This specification establishes the properties and requirements for 99 % grade 2-ethoxyethyl acetate. The specimens shall be adequately sampled and undergo chemical analysis, and shall adhere accordingly to chemical property requirements as to purity, alcohol content, color (Pt-Co scale), water content, distillation range (initial boiling and dry points), acidity as acetic acid, and apparent specific gravity.

    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 the properties of 99 % grade 2-ethoxyethyl acetate.

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

    1.4 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.

    1.5 The text of this standard references notes and footnotes that provide explanatory material. These notes and footnotes (excluding those in tables and figures) shall not be considered as requirements of the standard.
