This article discusses the importance of the use of Standards and Specifications, documents that specify methods, processes, test requirements, workmanship, parts, material, and design used repeatedly in the design, drafting, procurement, and manufacture of composite materials and products.
In this article two documents are reported as examples; in particular, one of them illustrates a composite material standard and the other a composite process specification.
Finally a listing of composite material specifications and a listing of applicable advanced composite ASTM (American Society for Testing Materials) standards are presented.
