The Window and Door Manufacturers Association revised and updated the WDMA TM 14-13 Test Method, according to a Dec. 19 association release. The updated document describes standard tests required for factory applied clear and pigmented coatings for interior wood and cellulosic composite millwork that will ensure a minimum acceptable level of performance with respect to film integrity and general appearance without the application of an additional field coating, according to the release.
 
 "The WDMA Supplier Technology Committee continues to ensure that WDMA materials standards are current," says John McFee, vice president of Certification Services, in the release. "This is very important as standards like TM 14 are referenced in the North American Fenestration Standard/Specification for windows, doors and skylights, which is the internationally accepted performance Standard/Specification for windows, doors and unit skylights."
