The intended use of this specification is for the qualification of construction designs and comparison of products.

Note 2There is no equivalent ISO standard. 1.2 The values as stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values in parentheses are given for information only. 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 and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. See 7.1 for specific hazards statement.
