BETHESDA, MD (January 2, 2007) - The Adhesive and Sealant Council (ASC) is pleased to announce the release of its ASTM - ISO Standards Comparative Guide. This guide provides a general comparative reference of adhesive testing standards between ASTM International standards and related ISO (International Standards Organization) standards. This study is focused on ICS field 83 (Rubber and Plastics), Section 83.180 (Adhesives) within the overall ISO structure.
