    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method is designed to provide a means for measuring in plastic specimens the dimensional changes resulting from exposure to service conditions. In particular, this test method is suitable for measuring shrinkage or elongation developed under specific oven and water conditionings.

    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.
