As a result of a remarkable piece of international collaboration between three national standards laboratories and seven United States and United Kingdom manufacturers, new reference tables have now been completed for platinum : 10 per cent rhodium-platinum and platinum: 13 per cent rhodium-platinum thermocouples. These new tables take into account the changes in the temperature scale resulting from the introduction of the International Practical Temperature Scale of 1968 (IPTS-68) and also provide reference tables which will be common to both U.S. and U.K. manufacturers and users of thermocouples.
