ASTM WK43758

    Work Item: ASTM WK43758 - Revision of E2357 - 11 Standard Test Method for Determining Air Leakage of Air Barrier Assemblies

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: E2357 - 11

    Developed by Subcommittee: E06.41 | Committee E06 | Contact Staff Manager



    1. Rationale

    This standard currently addresses air barriers, but the roofing community desires to participate in Code accepted quantifiable air leakage testing. Of the three recognized Code standards ASTM E 779, ASTM E 2357 and ASTM E 2178, ASTM E 2357 is the best suited standard that could focus on the roof membrane, while including typical penetrations and terminations. The foundation of ASTM E 2357 well supports the development of a roofing version that could added as an Annex.
