ASTM D6480-05 Test method for determining asbestos in samples wiped from surfaces
ASTM D6480-05 describes a procedure for detecting asbestos in wiped-off surface samples and calculating the concentration of asbestos as the number of structures per unit area of the tested surface. The final results of this test method are expressed in SI units.
ASTM D6480-05 is used to assess building surfaces, including ceiling tiles, shelving, electrical components, ductwork, and so on. This test method generates an index of asbestos structure concentration per unit area sampled based on a quantitative assessment of the number of asbestos structures found during analysis.
In ASTM D6480-05 test, a sample is collected by wiping a known area. Then the sample is transferred from the wiping substance to a known volume aqueous suspension. A membrane filter is used to filter aliquots of the suspension. A portion of the membrane filter is manufactured and transferred to a TEM grid using the direct transfer approach. TEM is used to identify, size, and count the asbestiform structures identified, sized, and counted using ED and EDXA at magnifications ranging from 15 000 to 20 000 ×.
Disposable Wet Towels, Masking Tape, Measuring Tape, Powderless, Rubber Gloves, Sample containers are required. Density of the liquid in the glass sample container is 1.0 g/cm³.
Calculation inASTM D6480-05 is done using the below formula
R = 4.185 S D (q1 – q2) ÷ t
Where 4.185 = joules/calorie, R = energy deposition, W/mL, q1 = temperature rise with the ultrasonic bath not operating °C, q2 = temperature rise with the ultrasonic bath operating °C, t = time, s (see 126.96.36.199), S = specific heat of the liquid in the glass sample container (0.2389 J/g), and D = density of the liquid in the glass sample container (1.0 g/cm3).
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.
