    Significance and Use

    5.1 This test method is to be used as a basis for comparison of adsorbents in a consistent manner.

    5.2 These tests are not appropriate for absorbent materials that are covered in Methods F716.

    Note 1: Ensure that material compatibilities exist between the sorbent and the hazardous substance which may be sorbed.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers laboratory tests that describe the performance of adsorbents in removing crude oils, nonemulsified oils and other floating, immiscible liquids from the surface of water.

    1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

    1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Specific precautionary statements are given in 8.3.1.

    1.4 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
