Standard Test Methods for
Compatibility of Screening Analysis of Waste1

This standard is issued under the fixed designation D 5058; the number immediately following the designation indicates the year of
original adoption or, in the case of revision, the year of the last revision. A number in parentheses indicates the year of the last reapproval. A
superscript epsilon (e) indicates an editorial change since the last revision or reapproval.

1. Scope

1.1 These test methods cover the assessment of the
compatibility/reactivity of waste. The individual test methods
are as follows:
Test Method A—Commingled Waste Compatibility 8-12
Test Method B—Polymerization Potential (Reaction with
Triethylamine) 13-18
Test Method C—Water Compatibility 19-25

1.2 These test methods are applicable to waste liquids,
sludges, semi-solids, and solids.

1.3 These test methods are designed and intended as a
preliminary or supplementary test to complement the more
sophisticated quantitative analytical techniques that should be
used to determine the waste composition and compatibilities. This
standard offers the user the option and the ability to screen
wastes for potentially hazardous reactions when the more
sophisticated techniques are not available and the total waste
composition is unknown and screen compatibility when the
composition is known.
NOTE 1—Warning: Delayed or slow reactions of wastes may go

1.4 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the
standard. The values given in parentheses are for information

1.5 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 hazard
statements, see Sections 10, 15, and 23 and Notes 1 and 2.
