New Test Method for Inspection of Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer Products using a Microwave Inspection Technique

1. Scope

The standard will provide standard methods for calibration, calibration standards, inspection procedures, and reporting when employing microwave technology to inspect various product types manufactured from Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer or Plastic.


Microwave; GFRP; Inspection; NDT


This standard is required as the result of deployment of advanced microwave NDT technologies being deployed in field inspection of GFRP tanks, piping, and wind turbine components, as well as other items. This standard will accompany an ISO standard that is being developed at the same time.

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