    Although the conditioning temperature of the cell or room used for conditioning is recorded a suggestion to actually know the conditioning temperature at the surface of the test panel and the sample being tested is not measured and recorded. It is important to know whether the conditioning temperature on the panels and product being conditioned are the same as the cell or room. This proposal for addition to D3161 is to ensure that condition is being met.sample temperature at conditioning relates to the temperature at the conditioning cell or room.
