Standard Test Method for Density and Relative Density (Specific Gravity) of Viscous Materials by Lipkin Bicapillary Pycnometer

|ICS Code (Measurement of volume, mass, density, viscosity):||17.060|
This test method covers the determination of the density of oils more viscous than 15 mm2/s (cSt) at 20 °C, and of viscous oils and melted waxes at elevated temperatures, but not at temperatures at which the sample would have a vapor pressure of 13.3 kPa (100 mmHg) or above.
NOTE 1-To determine the densities of less viscous liquids at 20 °C or 25 °C use Test Method D1217.
This test method provides a calculation procedure for converting density to relative density (specific gravity).
WARNING-Mercury has been designated by many regulatory agencies as a hazardous material that can cause central nervous system, kidney and liver damage. Mercury, or its vapor, may be hazardous to health and corrosive to materials. Caution should be taken when handling mercury and mercury containing products. See the applicable product Safety Data Sheet (SDS) for details and EPA's website-http:// www.epa.gov/mercury/
