    This proposed revision seeks to revise the Test Method to include the option of water as the bath medium to improve the safety of the Test Method. The oil makes the beaker slippery and difficult to handle when removing from the bath. The critical parameter for the bath medium is the ability to maintain the sample temperature at 60 C 1C. Data was submitted at the subcommittee level that current baths were capable of meeting the bath temperature requirements.
