ASTM WK39686

    Work Item: ASTM WK39686 - Revision of C553 - 11 Standard Specification for Mineral Fiber Blanket Thermal Insulation for Commercial and Industrial Applications

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: C553 - 13

    Developed by Subcommittee: C16.23 | Committee C16 | Contact Staff Manager

    1. Rationale

    The C553 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 Insulation on Aqueous Corrosion of Metals is proposed as an alternative test Steel only to the C665 Test Method for corrosion.
