Things about ASTM-E2268-04: Standard test method. for water penetration of exterior windows, skylights, and doors by rapidly pulsed air pressure difference.

1.1 This test method covers the determination of the resistance of exterior windows, skylights, and doors to water penetration when water is applied to the outdoor face and exposed edges simultaneously with rapid pulsed air pressure at the outdoor face higher than the pressure at the indoor face.

1.2 This test method is applicable to windows, skylights, or doors alone. Those interested in testing curtain walls to rapidly pulsed air pressure differences should use AAMA 501.1-94.

1.3 This test method addresses water penetration through a manufactured assembly. Water that penetrates the assembly, but does not result in a failure as defined herein, may have adverse effects on the performance of contained materials such as sealants and insulating or laminated glass. This test method does not address these issues.
