Research Report RR:B02-1001
The precision of this test method is based on an interlaboratory study of ASTM B982- New Specification for Sampling of Lead and Lead Alloys for Optical Emission, conducted in 2010. Each of ten laboratories tested a single material for nine elements. Every "test result" represents an individual determination, and all participants were asked to report five test results for each element measured. Except for the testing of only a single type of material, Practice E 691 was followed for the study design and analysis of the data; the details are given in ASTM Research Report No. B02-1001.
