ASTM WK47028

    Revision of D5118 / D5118M - 12 Standard Practice for Fabrication of Fiberboard Shipping Boxes

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: D5118 / D5118M - 12

    Developed by Subcommittee: D10.27 | Committee D10 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    The most common water resistant grade produced is V3c. The example used for required marking in the current D5118 standard is for V2s in Figure 4. The intent of this revision is to replace the V2s graphic example with one showing the V3c information. This change will not substantially alter D5118 but it will make it more readily usable.
