Research Report RR:D14-1016
Research Report D14-1016 presents the results of the Interlaboratory Study used to establish the precision and bias statement for ASTM D4497, Standard Test Method for Determining the Open Time of Hot Melt Adhesives (Manual Method). This collaborative study included six labs who used method D4497 to determine the open time, in seconds, of five types of hot-melt adhesives. This study was conducted in 1985, prior to the first publication of the test method. No extant Research Report is available from that study. This report uses the data that was generated by that ILS, as published in the standard in 1985, to calculate repeatability and reproducibility to revise the original Precision statement.
