    Significance and Use

    The sampling plan is intended for referee purposes only in establishing the properties or quality of a lot or shipment of synthetic rubber.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This practice, intended for referee purposes, covers a uniform procedure for sampling lots of solid synthetic rubbers. Raw synthetic rubber generally is marketed in bales or packages of various sizes.

    1.2 A procedure for determining the acceptability of lots of synthetic rubber is given. This procedure is based on a variables sampling plan.

    1.3 The sample size is based on the assumption of a visually homogeneous material. If obvious heterogeneity exists, the number of samples shall be increased.

    1.4 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

    1.5 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.
