Apparent Viscosity of Plastisols and Organosols ASTM D1823
Apparent Viscosity of Plastisols and Organosols at High Shear Rates by Extrusion Viscometer is evaluated by ASTM D1823 test method. The viscosity depicts the parameters encountered in roller coating, pumping, knife coating, mixing, and spraying processes. Viscosity characteristics define the suitability of a dispersion resin for any specified application.
ASTM D1823 test is used for measuring plastisol and organosol viscosity at high shear rates with the help of an extrusion viscometer. This test is used for defining the flow behavior of plastisol or organosol under high shear. The viscosity depicts the parameters encountered in roller coating, pumping, knife coating, mixing, and spraying processes. Viscosity characteristics define the suitability of a dispersion resin for any specified application.
For the ASTM D1823 test, the rheometer is set up and attached to the pressure regulator to the nitrogen tank. The nitrogen supply is connected to the rheometer with the help of copper tubing.
The tank pressure is regulated to provide 1.04 MPa (150 psi) pressure to the device. The test sample is then conditioned to the required temperature. After that, the test is placed into an extrusion chamber and extruded under typical parameters. The viscosity is determined by the extrusion pressure and the flow rate through the orifice.
The sample size used is as specified by ASTM D1823.
The shear stress, shear rate, and viscosity are calculated as:
Shear stress, MPa (or psi) = PR/2L
P = pressure in a rheometer, MPa (or psi),
R = radius of the orifice, cm (inches), and
L = length of the orifice, cm (inches)
Shear rate, s-1=4W/3.1416R3DT
W = weight of material effluxed, g,
D = density of sample g/ml, and
T = efflux time, s
Viscosity, pascal seconds = (shear stress/shear rate)106 (In terms of MP a)
Viscosity, poises = (shear stress/shear rate) x 6.895 x 104 (In terms of psi)
ASTM E572 test method covers the analysis of stainless and alloy steels by Wavelength Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometry (WDXRF). It provides rapid, multi-element determinations with sufficient accuracy to assure product quality.
The ASTM D2674 is a standard test method for the analysis of sulfochromate etches solution used in the surface preparation of aluminum. The ASTM D2674 standard specifies a method for determining the efficacy of an etchant used to prepare the surface of aluminum alloys for subsequent adhesive bonding.
An immunological method for quantization of Hevea Natural Rubber (HNRL) proteins using rabbit anti-HNRL serum. Rabbits immunized with HNRL proteins react to the majority of the proteins present, and their sera have the capability to detect most if not all the proteins in HNRL.
ASTM G65 measures the resistance of metallic materials to abrasion using the dry sand/rubber wheel apparatus. The quality, durability, and toughness of the sample are determined using this test. Metallic materials are ranked in their resistance to scratching abrasion under a controlled environment.
ASTM E2141 test methods provide accelerated aging and monitoring of the performance of time-dependent electrochromic devices (ECD) integrated in insulating glass units (IGU). This test helps to understand the relative serviceability of electrochromic glazings applied on ECD.
ASTM C724 test method is used in analyzing the quality and ease of maintenance of a ceramic decoration on architectural-type glass. This test method is useful in the acknowledgment of technical standards.
