ASTM WK58192

    New Test Method for Measuring Condensation Resistance of Fenestration Systems

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: C16.30 | Committee C16 | Contact Staff Manager



    WK58192

    1. Scope

    This test method covers requirements and guidelines and specifies calibration procedures required for the measurement of the condensation resistance of fenestration systems installed into a test chamber.

    The standard is needed so one singular method is referenced in building project specifications. It will be used by fenestration manufacturers and by project specification writers/developers.


    Keywords

    Condensation Resistance, surface temperature, thermal transmittance, dew point, relative humidity, U-factor, saturation point, pychrometric chart

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