The compounds calcium sulfoaluminate, spurrite and Measures, the acting director, Dr. Ambler, stressed the during the heating of kiln feed in the manufacture of portland cement. It has also been demonstrated that these compounds were formed by a gas-solid reaction between CO2 ideas and technology. Today the metric system is the language of economic communication, and the nation has committed itself to the conversion. In order to assist the public and eliminate any misunderstanding involved in this completely prevented formation of spurrite, addition of up to 1% P205 as calcium hposphate to the kiln feed did not adversely affect strengths of a commerical cement. Legal Metrology (OIML) will foster the country's stance in international commerce. The incorporation of new technologies into business will require changes in the measurement system that must be handled in such a way that the consumer feels that his needs are satisfied. Consumer concerns are of primary importance at NBS, where product safety tests are developed for the protection and knowledge of consumers. These three major concerns- metrication, new technology, and consumer interest-are the areas in which NBS is concentrating its efforts. Priorities in weights and measures will be determined for the optimum use of available resources. 1112A4100 149588EEJAPC10000000
