4.Test method
4.1 Appearance quality is tested by visual contact.
4.2 Test of grain size is processed under provision GB/T 3249.
4.3 Test of apparent density is processed under provision GB/T 1479.
4.4 Test of product chemical composition is processed under provision GB/T 4324.

5. Test rule
5.1 Product is checked by supplier to ensure the product is up to the standard, the product quality certificate is required.
5.2 After received the product, demander check the product according to the national standard. If the test result is not match to the stipulation, demander should inform the supplier within 3 monthes from the date of receive.
5.3 Product should be tested in batch, every batch should be consisted of the same blender.
5.4 Sample test of product is processed under provision GB/T 5314.
5.5 When the testing result is unqualified, then check this item repeated, if the repeated trials is still unqualified, then the product is below the standard.
