    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This specification was intended to provide a basis for identification of materials used to immobilize radioactive contamination, minimize exposure, and facilitate subsequent decontamination.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee E54 on Homeland Security Applications, this specification was withdrawn in January 2018 in accordance with section 10.5.3.1 of the Regulations Governing ASTM Technical Committees, which requires that standards shall be updated by the end of the eighth year since the last approval date.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification is intended to provide a basis for identification of materials used to immobilize radioactive contamination, minimize exposure, and facilitate subsequent decontamination.

    1.2 This standard provides a set of specifications describing a stabilizer (coating or coating system) to be used to prevent the spread of radioactive contamination. Some of these specifications may prove difficult to meet. A product that meets some, but not all, of the performance specifications herein may have value, and this specification may be used as a guide by which to evaluate such products.

    1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

    1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
