ASTM D3622 - 11 standard specification for 1-propanol (n-Propyl Alcohol)


Source: ASTM International

This specification covers n-propyl alcohol (1-propanol) volatile solvents for use in paints, varnishes, lacquers, and related products. The solvents should conform to the specified requirements for apparent specific gravity, color, distillation range, nonvolatile matter content, odor, water content, and acidity.
