Organization: ASTM International
Publication Date: 1 April 2019
Status: active
Page Count: 5
ICS Code (Environmental testing): 19.040
ICS Code (Refrigerants and antifreezes): 71.100.45
significance And Use:

5.1 The freezing point of an engine coolant indicates the coolant freeze protection.

5.2 The freezing point of an engine coolant may be used to determine the approximate glycol content,... View More

scope:

1.1 This test method covers the determination of the freezing point of an aqueous engine coolant solution.

1.2 This test method is designed to cover ethylene glycol base coolants up to a maximum concentration of 60 % (v/v) in water; however, the ASTM interlaboratory study mentioned in 12.2 has only demonstrated the test method with samples having a concentration range of 40 to 60 % (v/v) water.

Note 1: Where solutions of specific concentrations are to be tested, they shall be prepared from representative samples as directed in Practice D1176. Secondary phases separating on dilution need not be separated.

Note 2: The products may also be marketed in a ready-to-use form (prediluted).

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. Some specific hazards statements are given in 7.3.

1.5 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.
