This specification covers technical and vapor degreasing grade trichloroethylene. Technical and vapor degreasing grade trichloroethylene shall conform to the requirements prescribed. Specific gravity, distillation range, acidity, alkalinity, water, appearance, color, halide content, nonvolatile residue, and acid acceptance tests shall be performed to conform to the requirements specified.
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.
1.1 This specification covers technical and vapor degreasing grade trichloroethylene.
Note 1—Guide D3844, Practice D4276, and MNL2 provide additional important information on vapor degreasing and solvent properties.
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.
