D5972-16 is due for re-approval. The method is being practiced by industry users.
ASTM D5972 is technically joint with IP 435 of the UK’s Energy Institute.
The EI has recently revised IP435-16 with several changes, and the new method has been published as IP435-22.
This ballot proposes the same changes in order to harmonize with IP435-22.
It is further noted that an ILS is currently being planned which would involve D5972 and other freezing point test methods.
