ASTM WK39682

    Work Item: ASTM WK39682 - Revision of C1393 - 11 Standard Specification for Perpendicularly Oriented Mineral Fiber Roll and Sheet Thermal Insulation for Pipes and Tanks

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: C1393 - 14

    Developed by Subcommittee: C16.20 | Committee C16 | Contact Staff Manager

    1. Rationale

    The C1393 specification currently references C665 for Mineral-Fiber Thermal Insulation Specification containing a Test Method for Corrosiveness to Steel. A corrosion test practice C1617 Standard Practice for Quantitives Accelerated Laboratory Evaluation of Extracted Solutions Containing Ions Leached from Thermal Insulations on Aqueous Corrosion of Metals is proposed as an alternative test Steel only to the C665 Test Method for corrosion.
