    Revision of C1271 - 99(2012) Standard Test Method for X-ray Spectrometric Analysis of Lime and Limestone

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: C1271 - 99(2012)

    Developed by Subcommittee: C07.05 | Committee C07 | Contact Staff Manager



    WK38075

    1. Rationale

    The Precision and Bias statements, along with Repeatability and Reproducibility statements for ASTM C 1271 (Standard Test Method for X-ray Spectrometric Analysis of Lime and Limestone) are based upon a 1997 round robin test that was conducted with five high calcium limestones. Since the method is intended to be applied to the analysis of all limes and limestones, including those of dolomitic composition, testing of dolomites is needed.
