ASTM WK75735

    Revision of D3278 - 20 Standard Test Methods for Flash Point of Liquids by Small Scale Closed-Cup Apparatus

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: D3278 - 20

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



    WK75735


    Keywords

    flash/no flash; flash point; organic peroxides; organic solvents; small scale closed-cup apparatus;

    Rationale

    D3278 was recently withdrawn as a re approval ballot failed due to an unresolved negative that required the method to be significantly updated to take account of apparatus evolution since 1972. Subsequently the method was re approved with a plan to revise the test method. This work item is to revise the existing standard to bring it into line with similar test methods in ASTM (D3828 and D8174) and ISO 3679 while maintaining the integrity of the original ILS.
