4.2.1 In such cases, any references to the specification shall specify that: This product meets Specification D5432 except for the following characteristic(s).

4.3 Where no prepurchase agreement has been reached between the purchaser and the supplier, and in case of controversy, the requirements listed in Table 1 are intended to be used as a guide only. As noted in 4.2, ultimate consumer demands dictate varying performance parameters for any particular style.

4.4 The significance and use of particular properties and test methods are discussed in the appropriate sections of the specified test methods.
