ASTM WK45931

    Revision of A755 / A755M - 11 Standard Specification for Steel Sheet, Metallic Coated by the Hot-Dip Process and Prepainted by the Coil-Coating Process for Exterior Exposed Building Products

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: A755 / A755M - 15

    Developed by Subcommittee: A05.11 | Committee A05 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    Upon review, A755 contains some outdated or incorrect requirements for the organic portion of the standard. One example is the referencing of testing required via D2370. This is particularly in regard to the use of the word mandatory in the text of Clause 7.6 and Annex A1 and A1.1. The part of the standard that will be reviewed and revised if needed is the section discussing the organic coating.
