ASTM WK72081

Withdrawal of C1147-14 Standard Practice for Determining the Short Term Tensile Weld Strength of Chemical-Resistant Thermoplastics


This standard is being balloted for withdrawal with no replacement because a number of welder and weld procedure qualifications have been written and are presently ANSI recognized or internationally accepted. The use of ASTM C1147 can and does result in welders being qualified/certified that have passed the C1147 requirements but the welds are not structurally adequate for containment, especially containment of corrosive or dangerous liquids.
