ASTM WK35788

    Revision of E96 / E96M - 10 Standard Test Methods for Water Vapor Transmission of Materials

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: E96 / E96M - 14

    Developed by Subcommittee: C16.33 | Committee C16 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    The item being balloted is a revision of a previously balloted addition to the appendix of test method E96 that received a persuasive negative. The addition is based on the observations and experiences of Interlaboratory Study (ILS, or round robin) #512 conducted early to mid 2010. Information and related commentary on this ILS is contained in the text of this item. Information contained in standard Appendices is considered non-mandatory. It provides background and guidance or advice for consideration. Voting is on content of this item only, and on no other part of the standard.
