Active Standard: F876 - 13a
Project 26-11-06 will clarify the test protocol to be used for UV resistance classification of materials having a chlorine resistance rating. It appears that the current wording of clause 188.8.131.52 can be misinterpreted with unintended consequences with regard to the chlorine resistance rating. This revision does not reflect any change in the requirements.
