Organization: ASTM International
Publication Date: 1 November 2008
Status: inactive
Page Count: 2
ICS Code (Colour coding): 01.070
ICS Code (Laboratory ware and related apparatus): 71.040.20
significance And Use:

The purpose of this specification is to ensure that if a color code is used on pipets, all manufacturers will use the same code; it is not intended as an encouragement of color coding if this is... View More

scope:

1.1 This specification covers a system of color coding for one-mark pipets for identification of nominal capacities, and for graduated pipets for identification of nominal capacities and units of sub-division.

1.2 This specification applies to one-mark and graduated pipets of the nominal capacities listed in Table 1 and Table 2, respectively.

Note 1-Many pipets not covered by other ASTM standards are included in Table 1 and Table 2, in order, firstly, to ensure uniformity of color coding as far as possible for non-standard as well as standard pipets and, secondly, to reserve suitable codes for possible future standards for other types of pipet.
