ASTM WK41748

    Revision of D3953 - 12 Standard Specification for Strapping, Flat Steel and Seals

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: D3953 - 13

    Developed by Subcommittee: D10.25 | Committee D10 | Contact Staff Manager



    WK41748

    1. Rationale

    D3953 and D4675 refer to Loop Joints and Intersection Joints, but no test method or joint strength requirements are provided in D3953. There is no specified maximum reduction of break strength resulting from an intersection seal. The purpose of this Task Group is to investigate and recommend revision to D3953 to address this omission.
