    Significance and Use

    This practice is not intended to advocate or discourage use of any particular test method. It is intended for information only, and to provide a useful guide for further detailed study, test, and evaluation of cleanroom materials and products.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This practice identifies test methods used to evaluate the properties of various materials and products used in cleanrooms and for cleanroom construction.

    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.
