    Significance and Use

    4.1 This test method is used to determine a physical property of a wax and may determine the utility of the wax, as well as being a significant quality control test.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers the determination of the viscosity in centipoise of polyethylene wax using the Brookfield LVT or LVF viscometer and thermosel system.

    1.2 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
