Nonvolatile Matter in Volatile Solvent by ASTM D1353
Non Volatile matter in volatile solvents for use in paint, vanish, lacquer and related products is determined by standard method ASTM D1353 and it describes the analytical measurement of residual matter in solvents that are intended to be 100% volatile at 105 ± 5°C.
The standard test method, non-volatile matter in volatile solvents for use in paint, vanish and lacquer ASTM D1353 is useful in manufacturing control and assessing compliance with specifications. Volatile solvents are used in manufacturing of paint, vanish, lacquer and other related products. The product quality or efficiency of the process may get affected due to the presence of any residue. This ASTM D1353 method determines the amount of non volatile residue in violet solvents.
A dry 125-mL platinum evaporating dish is baked at 105 + 5°C, then cooled in a desiccator until the weight is within 0.1 mg of the previous weighing, according to ASTM D1353. About 100 mL of sample is kept into the conditioned platinum evaporating dish at room temperature, which is then evaporated by placing it on a steam bath or a hot plate in a fume hood. Same process for non volatile matter in volatile solvents is repeated until the weight is within 0.1 mg of the previous weighing. The following equipment are used – a thermostatically controlled oven at 105 ± 5°C according to ASTM D1353; a 100-mL cylinder, graduated, 100-mL; and an analytical balance, precision to ±0.1 mg. An aluminum or porcelain dish may be used as an alternative to a platinum evaporating dish.
100 mL of the test liquid.
Determination of non volatile residue in volatile solvent is represented in SI units and is considered as standard. The residue obtained from the specimen is milligrams of non-volatile residue/100 mL .
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.
