    Rationale

    Section 3.2 contains definitions of terms specific to this standard including various pieces of apparatus used in the testing procedure (for example, blocks, plates, platens and spacers), while sections 4.5 and 4.6 have technical requirements for those pieces. This ballot item attempts to clarify the definitions and requirements by reorganizing some of the information. Current notes 1, 3 and 4 are being deleted and the information contained in those notes being moved to discussion sections of various definitions.
