    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This test method covers the relative effectiveness of wood preservatives in small wood specimens exposed to a natural marine environment. It is not within the scope of this test method to determine the retention or duration of protection for commercial size piles and timbers.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D07 on Wood, this practice was withdrawn in January 2014 in accordance with section 10.6.3.1 of the Regulations Governing ASTM Technical Committees, which requires that standards shall be updated by the end of the eighth year since the last approval date.
