ASTM WK42134

    Revision of D3794 - 13 Standard Guide for Testing Coil Coatings Guide for Testing Coil Coatings

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: D3794 - 13

    Developed by Subcommittee: D01.53 | Committee D01 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    1.1 This guide has been written specifically for coil-coated metal building products. 1.2 This guide applies to preparation and rating of line-coated and laboratory-coated test panels for the purpose of comparing and ranking corrosion resistance and other related properties. 1.3 Testing may include accelerated tests and outdoor exposure tests. 1.4 SI units are used throughout this standard. 1.5 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

    During the ballot process for reinstatement of this standard, several thoughtful comments were submitted by voters. Now that the standard has been reinstated, we would like to consider those comments to improve the standard.
