ASTM WK65848

    New Practice for to Quantify the Performance Characteristics of Reflectance of Roof Coatings

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: D08.09 | Committee D08 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    to develop a reflectance performance standard for all roof coatings. The project scope is to develop a new standard, from the ground up, that will utilize 2 existing ASTM Standards to Quantify the Performance characteristics of the reflectance of roof coatings and establish a reflective performance standard. This task group is being established in lieu of the United States Environmental Protection Agency discontinuing their Energy Star Program for reflective roof coatings. I have attached the EPAs recent correspondence indicating their current activities. See below. Furthermore, I have also attached 2 existing ASTM standards, D 7897 and E 1918, as the two foundational standards that will be used to begin the Task Force Process.




    To replace standards no longer supported by the USEPA

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