    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This specification covers hexylene glycol (this compound is also known as 2-methyl pentanediol-2,4) for use in paint, varnish, lacquer, and related products.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D01 on Paint and Related Coatings, Materials, and Applications, this specification was withdrawn in January 2021 in accordance with section 10.6.3 of the Regulations Governing ASTM Technical Committees, which requires that standards shall be updated by the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 specification covers hexylene glycol2 for use in paint, varnish, lacquer, and related products.

    1.2 The following applies to all specified limits in this standard; for purposes of determining conformance with this standard, an observed value or a calculated value shall be rounded off “to the nearest unit” in the last right-hand digit used in expressing the specification limit, in accordance with the rounding-off method of Practice E29.

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

    1.4 For specific hazard information and guidance, consult supplier's Material Safety Data Sheet.
