    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers bale coating on bales of natural rubber (that have rubber wrapper sheets on the bales) and includes test method description. It specifies the maximum permissible amount of such coating.

    1.2 This specification is not applicable to natural rubber that is packaged with plastic wrappers, as no bale coating is used.

    1.3 The following safety hazards caveat pertains only to the test method portion, Section 5, of this specification: 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.
