ASTM WK54915

    New Test Method for Determination of Aerobic Biodegradability of Single and Multilayer Coatings

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: D20.96 | Committee D20 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    The standard test method is to develop a method for the preparation and testing of single and multilayer coatings for aerobic biodegradation for composting and other appropriate end of life disposal means.


    coating; biodegradability; compost; aerobic


    Two completely different test methods are presently used by testing labs for determining biodegradability of coatings, which result in vastly different results.

    The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
