ASTM WK25881

    New Test Method for Corrosion Test for Extended Life Coolants in Glassware

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: D15.06 | Committee D15 | Contact Staff Manager



    WK25881

    1. Scope

    This test method covers a beaker-type procedure for evaluating the effects of extended service engine coolants on metal specimens under controlled accelerated aging laboratory conditions.

    Automotive manufacturers have responded to consumer demand for lower-maintenance vehicles by developing and adopting extended service engine coolants. There is a need to develop test methods that differentiate standard service capability from extended service capability in engine coolant formulations. This method, adapted from Asian OEM and JIS standards, offers a possible advancement to the glassware corrosion methodology that may be useful in achieving that objective.
