July 26, 2011 - Developed by Subcommittee D01.53 on Coil Coated Metal, ASTM WK30920 will address test panel preparation and rating specifically for corrosion testing of building projects. Standardization of test panel configurations and ratings would allow benchmark comparisons across broad range of products that includes substrates, pretreatments, and coatings. Once approved, producers can use standard to develop new products, and users can employ it to verify and compare product performance.

Press release date: July 22, 2011

W. CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa., - A proposed new ASTM International standard will be the first that addresses test panel preparation and rating specifically for corrosion testing of building projects. ASTM WK30920, Guide for Corrosion Test Panel Preparation and Rating of Coil-Coated Building Products, is being developed by Subcommittee D01.53 on Coil Coated Metal, part of ASTM International Committee D01 on Paint and Related Coatings, Materials and Applications. According to Ted Best, Scientist, Valspar Corp., and D01.53 member, the standardization of test panel configurations and ratings would allow benchmark comparisons across a broad range of products that includes substrates, pretreatments and coatings. Producers will be able to use the proposed standard, once it has been approved, to develop new products, while users will employ it to verify and compare product performance. "These comparisons lead to better understanding of product performance as a function of environment, better service life predictions and shorter product development cycles," says Best. All interested parties are welcome to join in the development of ASTM WK30920. "Coil coaters and metal building manufacturers are especially welcome for the valuable input they can provide based on their experience and understanding of market requirements," says Best. ASTM International welcomes and encourages participation in the development of its standards. For more information on becoming an ASTM member, visit www.astm.org/JOIN.
