The ASTM International Directory of Equipment Manufacturers provides information on equipment type, from tensile and torque measurement items to automotive brake and engine testers, as well as tests the items can do or the materials they analyze. Each piece of equipment can be found according to how the manufacturer chooses to list it. A company can list up to 50 pieces of equipment and 20 standards for each piece — a potential 1000 individual items.
The ASTM International Directory of Testing Laboratories covers products tested, lab and testing services, lab accreditations and staffing, as well as direct contact information through e-mail or Web sites. Labs can list up to 100 standards for tests they conduct, and are searchable from the ASTM standards database, making it easy for thousands of users to find.
Finally, the ASTM International Directory of Scientific and Technical Consultants and Expert Witnesses delivers specifics about professionals, their services and their expertise, as well as their geographic service areas and whether they consult and/or take on expert witness roles.
Thomas Sliva, vice president and technical director of DL Labs in Brooklyn, New York, both lists in and refers to the directories. “Without the ASTM equipment, testing or consultants directories, it would be very difficult for us to meet all the needs of our clients,” he says.
