ASTM C 1036: Does It Work for Field Inspections of Surface Blemishes?


Glass can be damaged after installation, and often the home or building owner is left trying to determine if the resulting surface damage is acceptable. Glass quality is addressed in ASTM C1036, Standard Specification for Flat Glass. However, this standard is not intended for use in the field. It is useful for the proper specification of glass quality, and in lieu of any other field inspection standards, parts of ASTM C1036 are helpful in defining acceptable scratch criteria.
