Automotive industry refers to the designing, development, manufacturing, marketing, and selling of motor vehicles. The automotive industry is concerned with the production, research, wholesaling, retailing, development, and maintenance of vehicles and their components such as engines and bodies. The vehicle reliability, interchangeability, and safety is ensured by following the globally acknowledged standards. Automotive industry is a major contributor in the economy and technical innovation of a country.
ASTM standards have been devised to provide guidance for automobile manufacturers as they engage in the production and designing of motor vehicles. In order to ensure safety and better quality of the vehicles, ASTM International has developed a number of standards critical automobile construction, maintenance, and fuel. These standards abide by the global requirements and are aligned with the guidelines of ASTM, ISO, and SAE.
ASTM standards followed to ensure safety in all realms of production include a wide range of chemical, fuel, lubricant, engine oil, adhesive, sealant, deadener and physical testing such as IATF 16949, AEC-Q100, AEC-Q200, ASTM D68, ASTM D91, ASTM D92, ASTM D93, ASTM D95, ASTM D96, ASTM D97, ASTM D130, ASTM D189, ASTM D287, ASTM D322, ASTM D381, ASTM D341, ASTM D412, ASTM D445, ASTM D471, ASTM D482, ASTM D524, ASTM D525, and ASTM D664.
All these standards are practiced in various automotive industries to ensure efficient production and maintenance of motor equipment and systems. These standards help focus on the minute details and opt for effective ways to manufacture reliable motor vehicles.
ASTM E572 test method covers the analysis of stainless and alloy steels by Wavelength Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometry (WDXRF). It provides rapid, multi-element determinations with sufficient accuracy to assure product quality.
The ASTM D2674 test is a standard test method for the analysis of sulfochromate etch solutions used in the surface preparation of aluminum. The ASTM D2674 standard specifies a method for determining the efficacy of an etchant used to prepare the surface of aluminum alloys for subsequent adhesive bonding.
An immunological method for quantization of Hevea Natural Rubber (HNRL) proteins using rabbit anti-HNRL serum. Rabbits immunized with HNRL proteins react to the majority of the proteins present, and their sera have the capability to detect most if not all the proteins in HNRL.
ASTM G65 measures the resistance of metallic materials to abrasion using the dry sand/rubber wheel apparatus. The quality, durability, and toughness of the sample are determined using this test. Metallic materials are ranked in their resistance to scratching abrasion under a controlled environment.
ASTM E2141 test methods provide accelerated aging and monitoring of the performance of time-dependent electrochromic devices (ECD) integrated in insulating glass units (IGU). This test helps to understand the relative serviceability of electrochromic glazings applied on ECD.
ASTM C724 test method is used in analyzing the quality and ease of maintenance of a ceramic decoration on architectural-type glass. This test method is useful in the acknowledgment of technical standards.
