    Withdrawn Rationale:

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D16 on Aromatic Hydrocarbons and Related Chemicals, this test method was withdrawn in January 2017 in accordance with section 10.6.3 of the Regulations Governing ASTM Technical Committees, which requires that standards shall be updated by the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 and is applicable to the determination of dicumyl peroxide and the decomposition products dimethylbenzyl alcohol and acetophenone in cured and uncured polyethylene (PE) and ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) resins. These uncured polymers normally contain from 1 to 2 % dicumyl peroxide, whereas the residual peroxide level in the cured polymers is usually less than 0.1 %.

    1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.

    1.3 Review the current Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) for detailed information concerning toxicity, first aid procedures, and safety precautions.

    1.4 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. Specific hazards are given in Section 7.
