    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This specification covers the requirements and methods of test for three types and four grades of orange shellac and other lacs, typically used as bonding agents for mica splittings and reconstituted mica paper and as coating for other materials.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D09 on Electrical and Electronic Insulating Materials, this test method was withdrawn in November 2013. This standard is being withdrawn without replacement because the products referenced in this standard are no longer used in the electrical industry.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers the requirements and methods of test for three types and four grades of orange shellac and other lacs, typically used as bonding agents for mica splittings and reconstituted mica paper and as coating for other materials, as follows:

    1.1.1 Type IOrange Flake Shellac, Grades A, B, C, and D,

    1.1.2 Type IIButton Lac, and

    1.1.3 Type IIIGarnet Lac.

    1.2 Stick-lac and seed-lac are not covered by this specification.

    Note 1—ISO Specifications 561 and 562 cover shellac. However, the equivalency of the ISO specification to this standard is unknown. Refer directly to the ISO standards to determine equivalency.

    1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to inch-pound units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
