1.1 These test methods cover the chemical analyses usually required for sodium chloride.

1.2 The analytical procedures appear in the following sections:



Sample Preparation

5 to  9


10 to 17

Water Insolubles

18 to 26

Calcium and Magnesium

27 to 34


35 to 42

Reporting of Analyses

43 to 45

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 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.

1.5 Review the current safety data sheets (SDS) for detailed information concerning toxicity, first-aid procedures, handling, and safety precautions.

1.6 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
