ASTM - D5722
Standard Practice for Performing Accelerated Outdoor Weathering of Factory- Coated Embossed Hardboard Using Concentrated Natural Sunlight and a Soak-Freeze-Thaw Procedure
|Publication Date:||1 July 2008|
This practice covers techniques to accelerate weathering effects of factory-coated embossed hardboard using Cycle 1 of Practice G 90 (concentrated natural sunlight with periodic surface water spray) plus a soak-freeze thaw cycle (see Section 5 of this practice).
Testing by use of the methods described in this practice may be employed in the qualitative assessment of weathering effects. The relative durability of coated hardboards may be best determined by comparison of their test results with those of control specimens derived from real time exposure test experience.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
