Conclusions:
Relative density of test item compared to water was 0.830 when tested in a pycnometer test at 20 +/- 0.5 degrees C.
Executive summary:

A test using the pycnometer method, designed to be compatible with Method A3 “Relative Density” of Commission Regulation (EC) No. 440/2008 of 30 May 2008 yielded a value of 0.830 at 20.0 degrees C +/- 0.5 degrees C for the test article.
