4 Sampling

For method A or when measurements are done in laboratory, take a representative sample from the

whole of the available material. In the case of rolls, take approximately a third of the test pieces from

the area close to the edges, the distance between the outer edge of the sample and the nearest edge of

the roll being between 50 mm and 100 mm.
