Standard Test Method for Chlorine Content of Polybutenes Used for Electrical Insulation (Withdrawn 2017)


1.1 This test method describes the determination of the total chloride content of polybutenes used for electrical insulation.

1.2 WarningMercury has been designated by EPA and many state 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 the applicable product Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for details and EPAs website ( for additional information. Users should be aware that selling mercury or mercury-containing products, or both, in your state may be prohibited by state law.

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. For specific hazards information, see Section 8.

Significance and Use

Chlorine is normally present in polybutenes in small amounts, usually below 50 ppm, as organically bound chlorine. Inorganic chloride is normally not present.

Note 1—The qualitative presence or absence of inorganic chloride may be tested by Test Method D 878.
