ASTM D6295-98 Test for Dispensability of Light–Duty Pressure–Sensitive Film Tape
ASTM D6295-98 test method is used to determine the force required to dispense a pressure-sensitive film tape on a 1-inch core used in offices and stationaries. The values stated in either SI, or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard.
Pressure-sensitive film tapes come in roll form. Most Tape dispensers found in offices and stationaries should be able to sever these film tapes with a blade. ASTM D6295-98 test method measures the ease of this severing or dispensing of the tape. This test is suited for office and stationery; and tapes with acetate, cellophane, or light-duty plastic backings. The data from this test is used in product design and quality assurance. It can also be used in comparing different tape products on specific dispensing blades.
In ASTM D6295-98 test method, test fixture containing the dispenser blade is mounted in the lower jaw of the tensile tester. The distance between the teeth of the blade and the upper jaw should be 50 mm, measured from the tape edge, which the dispenser blade teeth will first puncture. The combination of the rate of movement of the jaw and the jaw separation from the dispensing teeth provides a strain rate of 500 %/min. The end of the tape specimen is folded over, 12 mm, to form a tab and placed in the jaw. This tab is placed in the upper jaw of the tester, making sure that it is aligned. The adhesive side of the lower portion of the specimen is adhered to the land of the blade, over the teeth of the blade, with very slight tension on the tape specimen. The stressing jaw is operated at 250 mm/min until the blade has severed the specimen.
The test specimens should be 18 mm wide and about 150 mm long. At least ten specimens are needed per roll. At least three but not more than six outer wraps from tape should be discarded from the sample roll before testing.
The force required to dispense film tape is reported.
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.
