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.

ASTM International Publishes 2nd Technical Report on Aviation

Today, global standards developerASTM International announced the publication of a new technical report on aviation. The report, “Developmental Pillars of Increased Autonomy for Aircraft Systems”, was developed by ASTM’s autonomy design and operations in aviation administrative committee (AC377).

New ASTM Standard Will Help Determine Presence of Metal in Fuels

A new ASTM International standard will be used to test for specific metals in crude oils. ASTM’s petroleum products, liquid fuels, and lubricants committee (D02) developed the new standard.

 

Proposed Standard Will Test Performance of Fiber-Reinforced Concrete

A proposed ASTM International standard will be used to evaluate the tensile performance of fiber-reinforced concrete (FRC) using cylindrical specimens with double-punch loading. ASTM’s concrete and concrete aggregates committee (C09) is developing the proposed standard.

Proposed Standard Will Aid Trace Content Analysis in Carbon Black

A proposed ASTM International standard will provide test methods used to determine trace metal content in carbon black with ICP-OES (Inductively Coupled Plasma-Optical Emission Spectroscopy) or ICP-MS (Inductively Couples Plasma – Mass Spectrometry) after adequate digestion. ASTM’s committee on carbon black (D24) is developing the proposed standard (WK73324).

Proposed Standard Provides Specifications for Three-Lumen Foley Catheters

A proposed ASTM International standard will help provide specifications and test methods applicable to three-lumen catheters. ASTM’s committee on rubber and rubber-like materials (D11) is developing the proposed standard.

The proposed standard establishes performance requirements for the various types of short-term use of a single-use, three-lumen, balloon retention catheter. Lumens are the inner spaces in tubes that transport liquids, gases, or surgical devices during a medical procedure.
