ASTM D3130 - 11 standard specification for n-propyl acetate (96 % Grade)


Source: ASTM International

This specification establishes the properties and requirements for n-propyl acetate. Specimens shall be sampled, undergo chemical analysis, and conform accordingly to specified values of the following requirements: apparent specific gravity; color (Pt-Co units); distillation (initial boiling point and dry point); nonvolatile matter content; water content; acidity (free acid as acetic acid); and purity.

This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.

1. Scope

1.1 This specification covers n-propyl acetate (96 % grade).

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

1.3 The following applies to all specified limits in this standard; for purposes of determining conformance with this standard, an observed value or a calculated value shall be rounded off 'to the nearest unit' in the last right-hand digit used in expressing the specification limit, in accordance with the rounding-off method of Practice E 29.

1.4 For specific hazard information and guidance, see the supplier's Material Safety Data Sheet for material listed in this specification.
