Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
The density of the substance was determined to be 0.8066 g/ml at 15 C using ASTM D4052.
Executive summary:

The ASTM D4052 test method uses the digital density meter and covers the determination of the density, relative density, and API Gravity of petroleum distillates and viscous oils that can be handled in a normal fashion as liquids at the temperature of test, utilizing either manual or automated sample injection equipment. The density is therefore determined to be 0,8066 g/ml as per specified standard method.
