    Revision of D1894 - 11e1 Standard Test Method for Static and Kinetic Coefficients of Friction of Plastic Film and Sheeting

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: D1894 - 14

    Developed by Subcommittee: D20.19 | Committee D20 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    Footnotes 4 and 5 which are referenced in Section 5.1 refer the reader to a sole source supplier of the sled sponge rubber foam. It has been determined that the specified sole supplier no longer exists. Therefore, this project was opened to remove footnotes 4 and 5 from the D1894 standard.
