ASTM WK36352

    Work Item: ASTM WK36352 - Revision of F22 - 02(2007) Standard Test Method for Hydrophobic Surface Films by the Water-Break Test

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: F22 - 13

    Developed by Subcommittee: E21.05 | Committee E21 | Contact Staff Manager

    1. Rationale

    This test method requires revision to reflect current industry practice for detection of hydrophobic surface films on production hardware surfaces and to add information on the relationship between observations of water-breaks, observations of water droplets applied by atomizer, and contact angle measurements. Also, the use of mica blanks will be moved to an appendix as this method is no longer in common practice.
