ASTM WK44097

    Revision of F3034 - 13 Standard Specification for Billets made by Winding Molten Extruded Stress-Rated High Density Polyethylene (HDPE)

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: F3034 - 15

    Developed by Subcommittee: F17.26 | Committee F17 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    The rational for this project is as follows; when this new standard passed ballot, several test requirements in section 5 were written without allowance for retest out of a desire to rapidly create the new standard. Several ASTM F17 standards include allowances for retesting and it would establish a bad precedent if this standard were to continue without retesting. Several of the test requirements are new and it is likely that industry had limited experience with this testing at the time of ballot.
