Established in 1898, ASTM is one of the world's largest voluntary standards development organizations. ASTM standards have grown to be among the most widely used and accepted global documents. The 82-volume Annual Book of ASTM Standards (available in print, on CD ROM, and on-line) contains 12,000 standards written by 34,000 members on 140 technical committees. These standards are widely used throughout the world as the basis of purchasing and other contracts, codes, laws and regulations. ASTM Committees D11 on Rubber and D24 on Carbon Black developed the standards referenced in this course.
