ASTM International to Host Informational Webinar on Barrier Face Covering Standard

Today, members of ASTM International’s committee on personal protective clothing and equipment (F23) announced an upcoming informational webinar on the recently approved specification for barrier face coverings (F3502). The webinar will take place Monday, Feb. 22, 2021, from 1:00 – 2:00 PM ET via Zoom. 

ASTM International Approves Face Covering Standard, Releases PPE White Paper

Today, global standards organization ASTM International approved a new standard for barrier face coverings that will help establish minimum design, performance, labeling, and care requirements for reusable barrier face coverings. The standard was developed by ASTM’s committee on personal protective clothing and equipment (F23). 

New Exoskeleton Standard Establishes Ergonomic Parameters

ASTM International’s committee on exoskeletons and exosuits (F48) has approved a new standard that will help establish ergonomic parameters and test metrics.

ASTM International Geosynthetics Committee Developing Proposed Vinyl Sheet Piling Standard

ASTM International’s geosynthetics committee (D35) is developing a proposed standard that covers vinyl sheet piling used in marine and geotechnical fields for seawalls, retaining walls, flood walls, erosion control, and pollution cut-off. 

ASTM International Steel Committee Developing Proposed Sharp-Cornered Steel Laser and Laser-Hybrid Square and Rectangular Tube Standard

ASTM International’s committee on steel, stainless steel, and related alloys (A01) is developing a proposed standard that will provide requirements for precision sharp-cornered laser and laser-hybrid carbon steel square and rectangular tube and guidance on the specification of open sections used in architectural and industrial applications. 

Proposed ASTM International Standard Will Test Blendability of B100 Biodiesel

ASTM International’s committee on petroleum products, liquid fuels, and lubricants  (D02) is developing a proposed standard that will provide a rapid, portable means to rate the filter blocking potential of a B100 biodiesel blend.

The proposed standard (WK59881) will fill a need for a test method that gives an indication of the blendability of B100 into ultra-low sulfur diesel (ULSD).

Proposed ASTM International Standard Will Test Water Retention of Stored Insulation

ASTM International’s thermal insulation committee (C16) is developing a proposed standard (WK67790) that will help determine the amount of water retained by flat specimens of rigid thermal insulation after immersion and drying. 

Proposed Forensic Sciences Standard Defines Terminology Related to Explosives Analysis

ASTM International’s forensic sciences committee (E30) is developing a proposed standard that will compile terms and definitions related to the analysis of explosives. 

Forensic science practitioners, students, trainees, and those involved in legal matters will use the proposed standard (under development as WK56998). 

New ASTM International Standard Will Aid Design and Monitoring of Graphite Components for Molten Salt Reactors

A new ASTM International standard will help in the design and monitoring of graphite components for molten salt design nuclear reactors.  Building on ASTM standard D8091, which presents guidelines on how to impregnate graphite with molten salt, a new standard  has been developed by ASTM’s committee on petroleum products, liquid fuels, and lubricants (D02) which provides a guide on how to measure the strength of impregnated graphite at elevated temperatures.
