New Test Method for Determining Screw Attachment in Gypsum Panel Assemblies

1. Scope

The formulation of definitions, specifications, and test methods relating to gypsum and gypsum products and the use thereof.
In addition, the scope of this Committee shall cover the formulation of definitions, specifications, test methods, and application standards for those construction materials, particularly for ceilings and walls, and related components and accessories not currently covered by existing ASTM Committees. The Committee will coordinate its activities with and maintain liaison with other ASTM Committees and organizations in matters of mutual interest.
In addition, the scope of this Committee shall cover the formulation of definitions, specifications, and test methods for related products not covered by other Committees, if approved by ASTM.

Keywords

screw test; spin out; screw performance

Rationale

This standard would be a consolidation of a test found in many standards. By consolidating the tests into one standard method, referring documents and references can be simplified as well as the process for maintaining the material in ASTM.

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