Task Group to Create Consistency in ASTM and DIN Standards for Moist SO2 Tests

Representatives from testing laboratories, equipment manufacturers and others are sought to participate on Task Group “G87 Moist SO2,” newly created within ASTM Subcommittee G01.05 on Laboratory Corrosion Tests under Committee G01 on Corrosion of Metals.

“The purpose of the new task group is to keep ASTM G 87 [Standard Practice for Conducting Moist SO2 Tests] consistent with DIN50018, after which it was modeled,” said Subcommittee Chairman Cindy Meade, National Exposure Testing, Ohio, who will lead the task group. “The industry will benefit from this task group because companies using this test will be able to perform one test which meets both G 87 and DIN50018. This standard is used primarily in the fastener industry.”

The task group first meets next month in Phoenix, Ariz., during the May meetings of Committee G01.

To participate, or for further technical information, contact Cindy Meade, National Exposure Testing, Sylvania, Ohio (phone: 419/841-1065). Committee G01 on Corrosion of Metals meets May 9-11 in Phoenix, Ariz. For meeting or membership details, contact G01 Staff Manager Bruce Noe, ASTM (phone: 610/832-9719). //
