This standard is being balloted for withdrawal with no replacement because it appears that this standard is used very little if at all. At the Fall 2013 D05.29 Main Meeting it was agreed to ballot for withdrawal to determine whether there is any interest in maintaining this standard. The Regulations Governing ASTM Technical Committees require that standards be updated by the end of their 8th year or be withdrawn.
