See the specific test method for applicability to other matrices. It is the user’s responsibility to assure the validity of these test methods in other matrices. The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversion to inch-pound units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
