    Significance and Use

    4.1 This test method is used to determine the quantity of iron and copper present in vegetable tanning materials or vegetable tannin extracts prepared using Practices D4901, D6404, or D6405.

    4.2 Because of the possibility of errors in this test method it is essential that the method be followed exactly in order to obtain reproducible results both among specimens within a laboratory and for analyses between laboratories.

    1. Scope
