The texture of concrete is one of the most important characteristics of a coating or overlayment bonding. A new ASTM International standard now fulfills the need within the concrete surface preparation field for a means of measuring and permanently replicating the profile of a concrete coated building surface. ASTM D7682, Test Method for Replication and Measurement of Concrete Surface Profiles Using Replica Putty, was developed by Subcommittee D01.46 on Industrial Protective Coatings, part of ASTM International Committee D01 on Paint and Related Coatings, Materials and Applications. The new standard will be useful to different parties. E.g. coating manufacturers can designate within the product data sheet the range requirements for the coating being used on the project, and engineers can write specifications utilizing the coating manufacturer’s product data sheets that designate a profile range for the required coating.
