ASTM WK64502

    Revision of D1655 - 18a Standard Specification for Aviation Turbine Fuels

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: D1655 - 19

    Developed by Subcommittee: D02.J0.01 | Committee D02 | Contact Staff Manager

    Rationale

    The contact information for Tracer A is no longer valid. The trademark for Tracer A has been abandoned which suggests it is no longer available. An internet search revealed Tracer Research was absorbed into Praxair Corporation. Praxair advertises a Tracer Tight program, identifies an obsolete edition of D1655 (99e) and implies there are multiple Tracer solutions for jet fuel. The latter is not true, only Tracer A is allowed for use in jet fuel. Multiple attempts to contact Praxair have gone unanswered. The subcommittee cannot retain a reference that might result in the use of unapproved additives. The ASTM Subcommittee J Chairman authorized this item via an email dated June 25, 2018.
