1. The ASTM Advanced Ceramics Committee Invites Your Opinion

This survey has been created by the ASTM C28 Advanced Ceramics Committee to identify new industry-consensus test standards that, if developed, would benefit the development and/or commercialization of new or existing advanced ceramics applications. All parties involved in advanced ceramics (producers, users, testers, and academics) are invited to participate in the survey.

If you have difficulty, questions, or would like to discuss this survey, the test standards development process, your participation, or the ASTM, please contact Dave Carruthers, davecarruthers@prodigy.net, or Steve Gonczy, Gatewaymt@aol.com. Thank you in advance for your participation.
