Revision of E1981-98(2020) Standard Guide for Assessing Thermal Stability of Materials by Methods of Accelerating Rate Calorimetry

None Provided

Rationale

Under 9.1.2 it is written that: An instrument calibration is best carried out using an empty, clean, light-weight sample container Based on experience and knowledge of all critical parameters, this is sufficient to ensure correct results. I would like to propose to change the original statement above by the following: 9.1.2 An instrument calibration is best carried out using an empty and clean sample container of the same type (same dimensions, wall thickness, and material of construction) as that intended to be used for the measurements with samples.
