    ASTM D4079

    Abstract

    This specification covers vapor-degreasing grade methylene chloride. Vapor-degreasing grade methylene chloride shall be subjected to different tests so as to determine properties such as specific gravity, distillation range at initial boiling point, distillation range at dry point, acidity, water content, appearance, color, nonvolatile residue, and acid acceptance.

    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 vapor-degreasing grade methylene chloride.

    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 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.

    Note 1—Practices D3844 and D4276, and MNL2 provide additional important information on vapor degreasing and solvent properties.
