    D6352 utilizes a reference material as a quality control standard. The present material is named 5010 Reference Oil. This material has been in used since approximately 2000 and at present it is available in limited supply since the material is nearly exhausted.A new material , a gravimetric blend has been produced , tested, and the Boiling Point (BP) values have been determined and submitted to statistical analysis. This work item is necessary to introduce the BP values obtained in ILS 1234 as well as the statistical uncertainty data into the method.
