Note: The tests prescribed for this specification no longer apply to plastic materials because they have been found to be "not reasonably necessary to eliminate or reduce risk of injury" (Federal Regulation Vol. 47 #124, Monday, June 28, 1982 p. 27856). Therefore, all plastic materials are suitable for use under this application.
