This standard is being balloted for withdrawal with no replacement because ASTM D1597 was balloted for reaffirmation 2 years ago and the ballot was never finalized; therefore, I think it is only fair to make the F17 members aware that the standard will be withdrawn and give them a chance to comment if they think otherwise. Although the research was quite thorough (i.e., nobody is using the standard), there is still a possibility that someone out there could have an interest in updating it. The withdrawal ballot would dispel all doubts and also proactively inform F17 members of the withdrawal.
