1.3 This specification shows the values in both SI units and in inch-pound units. "SI units" is the technically correct name for the system of metric units known as the International System of Units. "Inch-pound units" is the technically correct name for the customary units used in the United States. The values in SI units are provided as information only; the values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard.

These include finished glass fabrics, unfinished glass fabrics, glass tapes, glass sleevings, glass cords, glass sewing threads, and finished laminates made from finished glass fabrics.

1.6 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
