ASTM International Seeks Participants to Review Adult Portable Bed Rails Specification

ASTM International’s adult safety products subcommittee (F15.70) is seeking help reviewing its specification for adult portable bed rails and related products (F3186). The subcommittee is part of ASTM International’s consumer products committee (F15). 

Proposed Standard will Help Determine Methyl Hydrogen Content Standard in Hydrocarbon Oils

A proposed ASTM International standard will be used to determine the total methyl hydrogen content of un-additized base stock hydrocarbon oils (lubricating oils). The test method uses high resolution nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectrometers on samples that are completely soluble in chloroform at ambient temperature. ASTM’s petroleum products, liquid fuels, and lubricants (D02) is developing the proposed standard.

Proposed Cannabis Standard Presents Strategies for Post-Harvest Laboratory Analyses

A proposed ASTM International standard will establish sound sampling strategies for post-harvest flowers, leaves, and other cannabis or hemp biomass. ASTM’s cannabis committee (D37) is developing the proposed standard.

New ASTM International Standard Will Help Test Water Quality

A new ASTM International standard will help to measure organic compounds that can cause significant issues, including pollution and carcinogen generation, in water. ASTM’s water committee (D19) developed the new standard, which will soon be published as D7936.

Proposed Cannabis Standard Will Provide Guidance for Analytical Laboratory Operations

A proposed ASTM International standard will describe recommended practices for analytical laboratories in the cannabis industry. ASTM’s cannabis committee  (D37) is developing the proposed standard (WK63913).

New Asphalt Standard Provides Test for Determining Thermal Cracking Properties

A new ASTM International standard will provide a test method for determining thermal cracking properties of asphalt mixtures through the measurement of thermally induced stress and strain. ASTM’s road and paving materials committee (D04) developed the standard, which will soon be published as D8303.

New Standard Provides Specification for Low Density Poly vinylidene fluoride Based Material

A new ASTM International standard will provide a specification for low density poly vinylidene fluoride (PVDF) based materials intended for use in wire and cable jacketing. ASTM’s committee on electrical and electronic insulating materials (D09) developed the standard, which will be soon published as D8318.

New ASTM International Standard Aims to Reduce Maritime Cyber Risk

A new standard from ASTM International’s ships and marine technology committee (F25) is designed to assist and support the maritime industry in addressing cyber risks by leveraging existing safety management systems (SMS).

Proposed Cannabis Standard Will Help Establish Information Security Programs

A proposed ASTM International standard will provide structure, suggestions, basic requirements, and background education for developing an information security program specific to cannabis businesses. ASTM’s committee on cannabis (D37) is developing the proposed standard.

New Nuclear Technology Standard Covers Small Punch Test for Metallic Materials

A new ASTM International standard will allow laboratories and research institutions to estimate mechanical properties of metallic materials through a minimally destructive process known as small punch testing. ASTM’s nuclear technology and applications committee (E10) developed the new standard, which will soon be published as E3205.
