1.1 Tables and equations presented in this test method are for use in calculating the volume and weight of the following industrial chemical liquids:
1.1.1 Alcohols and Polyols: Tables Glycerin, high-gravity 1 Hexylene glycol 2 Isobutyl alcohol 3 Isopropyl alcohol, anhydrous 4 Isopropyl alcohol, 91 volume % 5
1.1.2 Chlorinated Compounds: Epichlorohydrin 6 Ethylene dichloride 7 Perchloroethylene 8
1.1.3 Esters: Ethyl acetate, 85-88 weight % 9
1.1.4 Glycol Ethers: Ethylene glycol monomethyl ether 10
1.1.5 Ketones: Acetone 11 Methyl ethyl ketone 12 Methyl isobutyl ketone 13
1.2 A test method is given for calculating the volume at 60°F from a volume observed at another temperature, °F. Note 1-Tables at 20°C can be calculated from the data and information provided.
1.3 A test method is given for determining the weight in pounds per U.S. gallon (in air) at 60°F from an observed specific gravity, and to compute therefrom the weight in pounds of a given volume of the liquid in U.S. gallons at 60°F.
1.4 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.
