Revision of F3012-14 Standard Specification for Loose-Fill Rubber for Use as a Playground Safety Surface under and around Playground Equipment

Keywords

None Provided

Rationale

Revised to include both ferrous and non-ferrous metal collection, in addition to inclusion of testing methodology to achieve a total exposed metal content, ferrous and non-ferrous, that shall not exceed 0.1% as measured by weight. (TUV) - Having already performed the new test procedure multiple times to determine total metal content, per the draft of F3012, this test can be easily performed by any test lab if contacted to do so. However, performing an ILS using the same sample would not be possible, since the found tramp metals are removed for weighing, per Section 9.4.2.
