Analysis of Elemental Content in Polyolefins ASTM D6247-18
The ASTM D6247-18 test method offers a general process using X-ray fluorescence spectrometry to determine elemental content in polyolefins. XRF (X-ray fluorescence) is a non-destructive analytical technique that is used to quantify the overall elemental content of polyolefins.
The ASTM D6247-18 test technique involves X-ray fluorescence spectrometry determination of elemental content in polyolefins at concentration levels similar to those given by additives and reactor activities. Multielement concentrations in polyethylene or polypropylene materials, or both, can be determined using X-ray fluorescence spectrometry, which is an accurate and reasonably quick approach. It can also be utilized for post-reactor investigations, additive levels in formulated resins, and finished goods as a quality control measure.
By presenting reference materials, critically assessing standard test techniques, and educating industry representatives who engage in standards development organizations, the ASTM D6247-18 test method is intended to increase the analytical capabilities of polyolefin producers.
The test specimen for ASTM D6247-18 is compression molded or injection molded into a clean, uniform plaque. The plaque is bombarded with a beam of primary X-rays in the Wavelength Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence (WDXRF), which causes each element to glow at different wavelengths (lines). The proper lines and spectrometer test settings vary depending on each element and other parameters in the sample matrix, such as detector response, concentration range, and other components. These secondary X-rays are dispersed with proper spacing diffraction crystals and detected by detectors set up at angles corresponding to lines of interest. Then, the concentration of the analyte is calculated by comparing the line intensity to a calibration curve.
Plaques with a satisfactory surface polish and uniformity are used as test specimens for ASTM D6247-18.
The concentration of elemental content in polyolefins is reported in the SI unit and is considered as standard
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.
