ASTM WK39907

    Revision of D471 - 12 Standard Test Method for Rubber Property—Effect of Liquids

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: D471 - 15

    Developed by Subcommittee: D11.15 | Committee D11 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    Much of the immersion testing done in the industry is not in compliance with the D471. The objective would be to bring the standard in alignment with typical industry practice. This modification will allow for the use of less fluid and less testing capacity to generate the same amount of data.
