Historical (view previous versions of standard)
1.3 The test requirements (acceptance limits) given in this specification are, as the case may be, minimum or maximum acceptable values for valid duplicate test results. Apply no additional corrections for test precision, such as described in Practice D3244, inasmuch as the precision of the test methods was taken into account in the determination of the requirements.
1.4.1 Exception—Test Method D2596 reports test results in kgf units. Until that standard is revised, Classification and Specification D4950 will show kgf units in parentheses after the SI units for information only.

SAE StandardsAMS3217/2B Test Slabs, Acrylonitrile Butadiene (NBR-L)-Low Acrylonitrile, 65-75 With respect to elastomer AMS 3217/2A, the elastomer specification has been superseded by AMS 3217/2B. Per SAE, the elastomers are identical, however the synthetic lubricant immersion fluid used to reference the elastomer has been exchanged from ARM-200 to AMS 3021. Reference fluid AMS 3021 better represents current market aviation fluids.
