    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: D5800 - 10

    Developed by Subcommittee: D02.06 | Committee D02 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    The purpose of the ballot is to update the precision statement. Recently an industry wide round robin was conducted with 30 labs running 10 samples in blind duplicate. Three base oils and seven fully formulated oils with volatilities of approximately 6 to 18% were tested. This data reflects results generated from new model instruments that are prevalent on the market now.
