Organization: ASTM International
Publication Date: 1 October 2015
Status: active
Page Count: 2
ICS Code (Other products of the chemical industry): 71.100.99
significance And Use:

4.1 Waxes do not go through a sharp solid-liquid phase change when heated and therefore do not have a true melting point. As the temperature rises, waxes gradually soften or become less viscous.... View More

scope:

1.1 This test method covers the determination of the ASTM dropping point for waxes.

1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

1.3 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.
