Standard Test Method for Density and Relative Density (Specific Gravity) of Viscous Materials by Lipkin Bicapillary Pycnometer
|Publication Date:||1 November 2012|
|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 cSt at 20°C (mm2/s), and of viscous oils and melted waxes at elevated temperatures, but not at temperatures at which the sample would have a vapor pressure of 100 mm Hg (13 kPa) or above.
NOTE 1-To determine the densities of less viscous liquids at 20 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
