    1. Scope

    1.1 This standard gives specifications and operating instructions for glass capillary kinematic viscometers of all the types described in detail in , , and as follows:

    Modified Ostwald viscometers, Suspended-level viscometers, Reverse-flow viscometers,

    1.2 The calibration of the viscometers is described in Section .

    1.3 This standard covers some widely used viscometers suitable for use in accordance with Test Method D 445. Other viscometers of the glass capillary type which are capable of measuring kinematic viscosity within the limits of precision given in Test Method D 445 may be used.

    1.4 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.
