A new ASTM subcommittee seeks to acknowledge the ongoing advances being made in the field of nanostructured inorganic coatings. B08.16 on Nanostructured Coatings, part of ASTM International Committee B08 on Metallic and Inorganic Coatings, is currently developing its first proposed standard, ASTM WK29468, Specification for Galvanic Protection of Steel Using a Nanostructured Coating of 95 % Zinc.

"The primary users of ASTM WK29468 will be steel companies that make galvanized products, including sheet metal, wire and structural products, as well as industry users who face the challenges of corrosion," said Christina Lomasney, president and CEO, Modumetal, and chair of B08.16. Lomasney noted that such industries include maritime, transportation, automotive, petrochemical and construction.

All interested parties are welcome to participate in the ongoing development of ASTM WK29468. "We hope to encourage participation from both suppliers, namely companies that are actively engaged in the development and production of nanostructured coatings, and from end users who would benefit from such coatings", said Lomasney.

ASTM International welcomes and encourages participation in the development of its standards.

ASTM Committee B08 Next Meeting: Nov. 17-18, November Committee Week, San Antonio, Texas
