    It was brought to the subcommittees attention that recent inquiries to various chemical suppliers havent been successful in sourcing hexadecane or tetradecane at purity specifications given in the test methods annex A4. Based on the text of the method this would require a purity of 99.9+% which appears not to be commercially available. Also, based on industry experience, a purity of 99.0+% will meet the AET temperature requirements of this annex.
