There is an industry need to improve the precision of the method. Pilot studies have shown using larger pans have shown improvement in precision and accuracy of the method. One ASTM wide round robin has already been conducted on the new proposed method, however the degrees of freedom were not met for reproducibility. This will be a second round robin attempt with the new proposed method.
