New Test Method for Determining the Ventilation Efficiency of Engineered Polymeric Drainage and Ventilation Materials Used as Part of a Rainscreen Assembly

1. Scope

The promotion of knowledge, stimulation of research, development and maintenance of standards and related documents for performance of buildings, their elements, components, including means and methods of fabrication and assembly; and the description, measurement, prediction, improvement, and management of the overall performance of buildings and building-related facilities. The work of this Committee will be coordinated with other ASTM Committees and other organizations having a mutual interest.


10. Keywords:10.1 ventilation; ventilation efficiency; ventilation performance; polymeric drainage and ventilation materials::


There are no existing standards dealing with this test method for polymeric drainage and ventilation materials. The current material specification contains this test method in Annex A and the test method needs to be split off from the material specification.

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