|ICS Code (Aromatic hydrocarbons):||71.080.15|
|ICS Code (Halogenated hydrocarbons):||71.080.20|
1.1 This test method determines the amount of bromine-reactive material in aromatic hydrocarbons and is thus a measure of trace amounts of unsaturates in these materials. It is applicable to materials having bromine indexes below 500.
1.2 This test method is applicable to aromatic hydrocarbons containing no more than trace amounts of olefins and that are substantially free from material lighter than isobutane and have a distillation end point under 288°C (550°F).
1.3 The following applies to all specified limits in this standard: For purposes of determining conformance with this standard, an observed value shall be rounded off "to the nearest unit" in the last right hand digit used in expressing the specification limit, in accordance with the rounding off method of Practice E29.
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 and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. For a specific hazard statement see Section 8.
