    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This test method covers a comparative procedure for observing the characteristic and residual odors of volatile organic solvents and diluents to determine their odor acceptability in a solvent system.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D01 on Paint and Related Coatings, Materials, and Applications, this test method was withdrawn in January 2021 in accordance with section 10.6.3 of the Regulations Governing ASTM Technical Committees, which requires that standards shall be updated by the end of the eighth year since the last approval date.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers a comparative procedure for observing the characteristic and residual odors of volatile organic solvents and diluents to determine their odor acceptability in a solvent system.

    1.2 It is not intended that this test method be employed to determine subtle odor differences between materials or to determine odor intensity.

    1.3 It is recommended that this test method not be employed to determine the residual odor of a liquid if its time for evaporation to dryness at room temperature exceeds 30 min or as agreed upon.

    1.4 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

    1.5 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. For specific hazard statements, see Section 4.

    1.6 For specific hazard information, see the supplier's Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS).
