Nanotechnology refers to the manipulation of matter on a near-atomic scale to produce new structures, materials, and devices. It ensures scientific advancement in many sectors such as energy, materials and manufacturing, consumer products and has various applications in military, industry, and the global world. Nanotechnology is concerned with the innovation, production, research, and development of products related to information technology, homeland security, medicine, transportation, food safety, and environmental science. It is a major contributor in the economy and technical innovation. It covers the designing, testing, and modification of various technology related systems.
ASTM standards have been devised to provide guidance for tech-equipment manufacturers as they engage in the production and designing of technical devices. In order to ensure safety and better quality of the systems, ASTM International has developed a number of standards critical to terminology, measurement, and EHS effects. These standards abide by the global requirements and are aligned with the guidelines of International Standardization Organization (ISO) Technical Committee (TC) 229 on Nanotechnologies, ASTM International’s Committee E56 (Nanotechnology) , International Electro-technical Commission Technical Committee 113 (Nanotechnology Standardization for Electrical and Electronics Products and Systems), and Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers’ Nanotechnology Council.
ASTM standards followed to ensure safety in all realms include ASTM E2909-13, ISO/TS 80004-1:2010, ASTM E2490-09, ISO/TR 13014:2012, ASTM E2524-08, ISO/TS12901-1:2012, and ASTM E2996-15.
All these standards are practiced in various nanotechnology industries to ensure efficient production and maintenance of equipment and systems. These standards help focus on the minute details and opt for effective ways to manufacture reliable equipment.
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 test is a standard test method for the analysis of sulfochromate etch solutions 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.
