Organized in 1898, ASTM has grown into one of the largest voluntary standards development systems in the world. ASTM is a not-for-profit organization which provides a forum for producers, users, ultimate consumers, and those having a general interest (representatives of government and academia) to meet on common ground and write standards for materials, products, systems and services.
ASTM standards are developed and used voluntarily. Standards become legally binding only when a government body references them in regulations, or when they are cited in a contract. Any item that is produced and marked as conforming to an ASTM standard must meet all applicable requirements of that standard.
ASTM standards are used by thousands of individuals, companies and agencies. Purchasers and sellers incorporate standards into contracts architects and designers use them in plans; government agencies reference them in codes, regulations and laws; and many others refer to the standards for guidance.
Steelscape products are manufactured in accordance with the most recent versions of the respective ASTM standards as listed below:
ZINCALUME® products ASTM A792
TruZinc® products ASTM A653
Both of the above listed ASTM standards reference ASTM A924 and ASTM A568 which represent general requirements and cold rolled substrate requirements, respectively.
