(a) In lieu of standard test method, alternate test methods may be used for the certification of a product property.

(b) Density at 15°C is based on measurement of the wax liquid density at a higher temperature corrected to 15°C using ASTM D1250 Table B.

Note 1: Products are certified on release to meet the values specified. Actual values may deviate within the established reproducibility of the test method specified.

Note 2: For purpose of determining conformance with specification, observed or calculated values shall be rounded off to the nearest unit in the last significant digit used in expressing the limiting value in accordance to the ASTM E 29 method
