    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This is a screening test method to determine if sufficient inhibitors are present in 1,1,1-trichloroethane to provide at least minimal stability in the presence of aluminum.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D26 on Halogenated Organic Solvents and Fire Extinguishing Agents, this test method was withdrawn in November 2017. This standard is being withdrawn without replacement due to the manufacture and use of 1,1,1-trichloroethane having been phased out throughout most of the world. The committee is aligning itself with this and also with the efforts of the U.S. EPA Significant New Alternatives Program (SNAP).

    1. Scope

    1.1 This is a screening test method to determine if sufficient inhibitors are present in 1,1,1-trichloroethane to provide at least minimal stability in the presence of aluminum.

    1.2 Solvent passing this test method may not be stable for all applications.

    1.3 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. A specific hazard statement is given in Section 6.
