ASTM WK71875

    New Test Method for Standard Test Method for Polyfluoralkyl Substances in Synthetic Turf

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: F08.65 | Committee F08 | Contact Staff Manager



    WK71875

    1. Scope

    Adopt a test method for measuring polyfluoroalkyls substances in synthetic turf.


    Keywords

    Polyflouroalkyl;synthetic turf

    Rationale

    The EPA has finished a monitoring program on PFAs in drinking water and may issue a drinking water limit for certain PFAs. This has increased concern in some areas about potential sources of PFAs that may contaminate drinking water. Currently there is no test method that is considered appropriate for determining if synthetic turf components contain PFAs of concern and if they can leach into ground water sources for drinking water.

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