ASTM WK43783

    Revision of D3161 / D3161M - 13 Standard Test Method for Wind-Resistance of Steep Slope Roofing Products (Fan-Induced Method)

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: D3161 / D3161M - 14

    Developed by Subcommittee: D08.02 | Committee D08 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    In discussions following the approval of the 2013 revision of D3161 with title change, it was proposed that the use of the word adhesive was confusing and unnecessary, and that the word sealant was sufficient. The proposed changes remove that confusion.
