The title of the standard will be changed to Test Method for Density of Powder Metallurgy (PM) Materials Containing Less Than Two Percent Porosity Using Archimedes Principle. The schematic figures need to be updated. With the exception of the list of wire diameters in Section 6.4, there are no other inch-pound units in the standard. The inch-pound values for the wire diameters will be removed.
