Participation Sought for New Building Foam Sealants Subcommittee
ASTM Task Group C24.20.11 on Aerosol Foam Sealants will officially become new Subcommittee C24.61 on Aerosol Foam Sealants when Committee C24 on Building Seals and Sealants meets June 18-21 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

The new subcommittee will continue the task group’s development of a test method for yield. “The yield value will provide the end-user an estimate of the length of construction gap between building materials that can be sealed with a single aerosol can of foam,” says Robert Braun, acting subcommittee chairman, and R&D manager for Flexible Products Co., Joliet, Ill.

“This new subcommittee will initially work on developing one additional test method for post-dispensing expansion and two performance specifications for two types of aerosol foam,” Braun continues. “One performance specification is pertinent to polyurethane foam sealant and the other to latex foam sealant. The new subcommittee invites any interested user or testing facility for these products to join.”

For further information, contact Robert Braun, Flexible Products Co., 2050 N. Broadway, Joliet, IL 60451 (815/774-6500; fax: 815/774-6500). C24 meets June 18-21 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. and Jan. 28-31 in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. For further C24 meeting or membership information, contact manager Len Morrissey, ASTM (610/832-9730). //
