Standard Specification for Vapor-Degreasing Grade Perchloroethylene


This specification covers the requirements and corresponding test methods for vapor-degreasing grade perchloroethylene. When tested, materials shall conform to the following physical properties: specific gravity; distillation range (initial boiling point and dry point); acidity as HCl; alkalinity as NaOH; water content; appearance; color in Pt-co units; halides content; nonvolatile residues content; acid acceptance; and copper corrosion behavior.


1.1 This specification covers vapor-degreasing grade perchloroethylene.2

Note 1: Guide D3844 and Practice D4276 provide additional important information on solvent properties.

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

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, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
