ASTM D1131 – Standard Test Methods of Testing Rosin Oils (Withdrawn 2003).
1.1 These test methods are intended for use in determining whether a rosin oil conforms with the specifications and requirements usually applied to ensure its suitability for a particular use. In general, not all of the tests will be required to determine the fitness of an oil for a specific use. The term "rosin oil" includes the oils obtained by dry destructive distillation of rosin, with or without subsequent redistillation, and also certain compounded oils prepared from a rosin oil base. It has no relationship to the product formerly known as liquid rosin, for which the term "tall oil" has been adopted.
1.2 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, 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.
