This specification establishes the properties and requirements for hexyl acetate used as an active tail high boiling solvent in lacquers, automotive coatings, maintenance paints, and other related coatings. Specimens shall be sampled and tested as appropriate, and shall meet specified values of the following properties: acidity (free acid as acetic acid); apparent specific gravity; color (Pt-Co units); distillation range (initial boiling point and 95 % point); Ransburg electrical resistivity; ester value; and water content.
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.
1.3 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.
