ASTM WK71678

Revision of F628-12e3 Standard Specification for Acrylonitrile-Butadiene-Styrene (ABS) Schedule 40 Plastic Drain, Waste, and Vent Pipe With a Cellular Core


The change to the standard to add the ash test was never properly tested (round-robin by various manufacturers affected by the added test) and the testing and results that was done was not made available to verify, creating a test procedure that has no technical validity and as currently written is deficient. Testing data from those opposed (Manufactures and test lab) to adding the test was rejected and not reviewed prior to adding the ash test into F628 .
