ASTM announces subcommittee on hydropower plant protective coatings


International manufacturing standards group ASTM is launching a new subcommittee to develop and test methods and specifications for coatings and linings used in hydroelectric projects.

The group will be a subcommittee of ASTM'S Committee on Protective Coatings and Lining Work for Power Generation Facilities -- also known as D33 -- and will focus on abrasion, corrosion, impacts from logs and trees, high water flow environments and more.

ASTM said hydropower plant owners and operators will be the primary users of standards established by the new subcommittee.

The group will have its next meeting July 20-21 in West Conshohocken, Pa.

Parties interested in joining D33 can do so by contacting ASTM's Joe Hugo via email or telephone at +1-610-832-9740.
