ASTM D-120 Updated

astm_international_75687ASTM D-120 has been updated to version “-14a”, approved Nov 1, 2014 and effective December 2014.

ASTM D-120-14a, Standard Specification for Rubber Insulating Gloves

The update changes the wording of Section to allow for electrical testing of gloves to be performed using either a true-“RMS or average responding” voltmeter.  The previous edition wording used antiquated language of “RMS responding voltmeter”, and was found to confuse users of the standard.

ASTM standards are viewable through our Resources page.
