ASTM WK66870

    Revision of D4355 / D4355M - 14(2018) Standard Test Method for Deterioration of Geotextiles by Exposure to Light, Moisture and Heat in a Xenon Arc-Type Apparatus

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: D4355 / D4355M - 14(2018)

    Developed by Subcommittee: D35.02 | Committee D35 | Contact Staff Manager



    WK66870


    Keywords

    accelerated weathering; degradation; deterioration; geotextiles; solar radiation; xenon arc;;

    Rationale

    - Keep only in Note 9: NOTE 9Practice G155 does not specify a particular irradiance level. Various options are listed in Table X3.1 of the appendix in Practice G155. However, as the historical records of testing of geotextiles are based on the irradiance of 0.35 W/m2/nm at 340 nm. Other modifications: - Accept testing at 500h only as an option - Accept testing tensile properties adapted to the product being evaluated, i.e. D6637 for geogrids, or XXXX for erosion control products.
