    Abstract

    This specification covers dry cleaning-grade perchloroethylene suitable for use in the dry cleaning industry. Materials shall be tested and the individual grades shall conform to specified values of appearance, water content, residual odor, specific gravity, non-volatile residue content, boiling point, dry point, acid acceptance, and copper corrosion.

    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 drycleaning-grade perchloroethylene suitable for use in the drycleaning industry.

    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 appropraite safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
