We have nearly 200 companies participating in various ongoing FREE studies and more added every day; the response has been overwhelming.

Our next study will be ASTM E96 Standard Test Methods for Water Vapor Transmission of Materials, both manual and instrument methods. COF coefficient of friction ASTM D1894 study first round of data and the report is being produced now. Once completed one of our team members will be in contact with participants.

If you would like to participate in this FREE study, please respond to this email by sending an email to Susan Havey @ shavey@labthinkinternational.com with a message saying, "I would like to participate in the free ASTM E96 Standard Test Methods for Water Vapor Transmission of Materials, both manual and instrument methods". Please include the designated contact person's information (including name, title, phone #, physical mailing address, email address, etc.) who we should send the control samples to and identify the instrument(s) that you would like to use in the study. We will send you the control samples with instructions on how to perform the test(s) and return the results to us. Please note that all companies' test results will have a unique control number assigned to them and the results will be completely confidential. Once we have all participants' results back, we will share the final report with all those who took part. This is our non-permeability round robin study however, based on customer feedback, additional round-robin studies will be initiated in the future.

What is the study about?

We are looking for companies to participate in FREE round robin testing proficiency studies utilizing ASTM / ISO /TAPPI standards. The reason for my email is to see if you and your company test to those standards and, if so, which standards. If you decide to take part, your results will be pooled with the results of other participants.

Below studies are still open for new participants.

* OTR oxygen transmission rate ASTM D3985
* WVTR water vapor transmission rate ASTM or ISO all methods test conditions to be observed are 38?C and 90% RH
* COF coefficient of friction ASTME D1894

Participation in this study will allow you to see how your testing procedure and results compare to other companies who use the same standards and materials. Upon completion of the study, you will receive a blind report with your confidential control number. The report will include not only your test results but the results of all participants for your review.

Would you like to share with me what standards you test in accordance to? If so, please email me @ cprimiani@labthinkinternational.com. Thank you.
