Rationale: This standard had a date of 2007 and will fall off the books sometime in 2015 if not approved. This ballot contains the revisions made to satisfy all negatives and comments on previous ballots that were agreed to be done on future ballots. However, the subcommittee respectfully requests that the membership review this standard with one caveat to the previous sentence. This caveat is due to the time that has passed and the loss of some of records on this standard due to our office changing email servers three times (Groupwise, to Outlook, to Goggle) in the past five years. Therefore, the caveat is that everyone understands that any changes that were not made were un-intentional. Any editorial corrections to standard ASTM language will be done by the ASTM editor.
