ASTM WK65514

    Revision of C203 - 05a(2017) Standard Test Methods for Breaking Load and Flexural Properties of Block-Type Thermal Insulation

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: C203 - 05a(2017)

    Developed by Subcommittee: C16.32 | Committee C16 | Contact Staff Manager



    WK65514


    Keywords

    breaking load; breaking strength; flexural strength; modulus of elasticity; modulus of rupture;;

    Rationale

    The safety precautions in the standard are outdated compared to language in other standards within Subcommittee C16.32. Additionally, a reference to ASTM C133 is redundant with the description of supports within ASTM C203. Additional revisions seek to improve clarity and consistency within the standard by revising or removing outdated or unclear language.
