In NOTE 8, the upper temperature listed for oil removal needs to be increased from 1200F to 1600F. While this is not needed technically for removal of the oil, it is needed from a practical perspective as PM parts makers are able to use existing production furnaces for oil removal if the upper temperature listed is increased to 1600F. A similar temperature range will be listed in B963.
