The term latex is currently defined differently in two C09 Standards(C1059 and C1438), which is in conflict with Form & Style, and the C09 Bylaws. It is the responsibility of C09.91 to resolve this conflict, and place the definition in the Committee Terminology Standard. The definition below was approved on Ballot C09(04-13) for use in C1059, and is consistent with definitions found in the ASTM Terminology Dictionary as used by other Committees. Although there may be more chemically detailed definitions, the one proposed is well suited to use in C09 and more complete than the one found in C1438. Upon approval of this Item, the term is to be balloted out of the 2 conflicting Standards.
