ASTM announces round robins, new standards activities.ASTM International ASTM International (ASTM) is an international standards developing organization that develops and publishes voluntary technical standards for a wide range of materials, products, systems, and services. , West Conshohocken, PA, has launched several activities related to the coatings technology industry.
A subordinate committee composed of members appointed from a main committee.
Noun E 12.14 on "Multi-Dimensional Characterization of Appearance," part of Committee E 12 on Color and Appearance is tackling the problems involved in instrumental measurements of the appearance of high-quality surfaces. Dol (directness of image) is valued and easily discriminated visually, but hard to achieve and difficult to measure instrumentally. All interested are invited to join their current efforts in obtaining instrumental and visual data through a series of round-robin experiments. This data will be used by the committee to develop ASTM ASTM
American Society for Testing and Materials standards for high correlation instruments.

Subcommittee E 12.06, part of E 12 on Color and Appearance, has undergone a change of both its title and scope. Previously known as Appearance of Displays, it is now called "Image-Based Color Measurements." The new scope is to create standards that prescribe pre·scribe

The opportunities arising from digital imaging technology are creating needs for quantification and measurement of color not of the white race; - commonly meaning, esp. in the United States, of negro blood, pure or mixed.

ASTM Committee G 02 on Wear and Erosion is gauging interest in a new set of standards for measuring the adhesion adhesion /ad·he·sion/ (ad-he´zhun)
1. the property of remaining in close proximity.
2. the stable joining of parts to one another, which may occur abnormally.
3. of coatings and thin films using a single-point scratch method. This activity will be conducted under Subcommittee G 02.30 on Abrasive abrasive, material used to grind, smooth, cut, or polish another substance. Natural abrasives include sand, pumice, corundum, and ground quartz. Carborundum (silicon carbide) and alumina (aluminum oxide) are important synthetically produced abrasives. Wear, but work will be coordinated with Committee C 28 on Advanced Ceramics. The new standard will enable users of the scratch adhesion test to make standardized standardized

Finally, Subcommittee G 03.01 on Joint Weathering Projects has reformed Task Group G 03.01.05 on Compliance Issues. While there are no plans to develop a standard, the subcommittee, which is part of Committee G03 on Weathering and Durability, welcomes any interested parties to participate in the work of the reformed task group. The goals of the reformed task group include: to define the use of tolerances and operational fluctuations in weathering standards, harmonize the expression of tolerances/operational fluctuations in weathering standards, consider if measurement uncertainty applies to weathering standards, and consider the feasibility of mapping test conditions in weathering instruments. For technical information, contact Oscar L. Cordo, Atlas Weathering Services Group, 305.824.3900, firstname.lastname@example.org. Committee G 03 will meet June 2023 in Boston, MA.
