Revision of D586-19 Standard Test Method for Ash and Organic Matter Content of Degradable Erosion Control Products


This standard was significantly revised in 2019. The standard has been reviewed and at this time, only two changes are being made. In 1.1 the tolerance for the temperature was missing. The tolerance was already included elsewhere in the standard. It is being added at this time. A member encountered a product having a low density which resulted in a lower mass than 2g. After discussions with the member, it has been agreed that a note should be added in case other labs encounter a product with similar characteristics. It has also agreed that it was not in the best interest of the industry to change the minimum mass in this standard to try and accommodate this type of product as other issues could result for non-low density products. Only the changes being made are being balloted.
