ASTM WK69818

    Withdrawal of D4457-02(2014) With Replacement D6886-18 Standard Test Method for Determination of the Weight Percent Individual Volatile Organic Compounds in Waterborne Air-Dry Coatings by Gas Chromatography

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: D01.21 | Committee D01 | Contact Staff Manager



    chlorinated hydrocarbons in paints by gas chromatograph; dichloromethane, in paints; exempted solvent in paints; gas chromatograph, halohydrocarbon; 1,1,1-trichloroethane, in paints;


    Rationale: D4457 employs an outdated packed chromatography column and is being balloted for withdrawal. The standard will be replaced by D6886, a more modern standard which calls for an open-tubular capillary column. The withdrawn D4457 standard will continue to be made available through ASTM, but will not be actively maintained.
