ASTM WK44089

    Revision of D3716 - 99(2008) Standard Test Methods for Use of Emulsion Polymers in Floor Polishes

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: D3716 - 14

    Developed by Subcommittee: D21.03 | Committee D21 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    Section F4.3.2 of the Form and Style of ASTM Standards states that a product supplier may be identified in a standard only when there is a single supplier. Section 7.1.3 identifies a specific supplier and apparatus model for use with D3716. Brookfield Engineering, the identified supplier, was a sole source for the required apparatus when the standard was first published. However, today a number of suppliers (see appended list) provide equivalently performing apparatus. It is proposed that standard D3716-99 be revised to reflect a generic apparatus description and procedure suitable to instruments offered by several suppliers.
