ASTM WK40280

    Revision of D2017 - 05 Standard Test Method of Accelerated Laboratory Test of Natural Decay Resistance of Woods

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: D07.06 | Committee D07 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    The development of new wood based materials, including certain wood composites and wood plastic composites, creates some challenges in testing decay resistance. Testing these new materials according to the current version of D2017 may lead to inaccurate test results. Standard AWPA E10 has already been revised to accommodate recommendations with respect to testing wood composites and wood plastic composites.
