Full Name

ASTM C272 – Standard Test Method for Water Absorption of Core Materials for Sandwich Constructions

Scope

This test method covers the determination of the relative amount of water absorption by various types of sandwich construction core materials when immersed in water, or when subjected to a high relative humidity environment.

Permissible core material forms include those with continuous bonding surfaces (such as balsa wood and foams) as well as those with discontinuous bonding surfaces (such as honeycomb).

Keywords
