Revision of D721-17 Standard Test Method for Oil Content of Petroleum Waxes


Update the precision statement based on the outcome of ILS 1510.

There is no evidence to suggest that precision statements have been obtained via ILS since the method was originally approved in 1943. As an industry it appears the test is performed poorly (TPI <1.0) and precision statements should be revaluated.

This work item was originally registered under WK60528 and approved in 2017.
