Butylated Hydroxy Toluene in Polymers of Ethylene and Ethylene–Vinyl Acetate ASTM D4275
The ASTM D4275 test method consists of solvent extraction proceeded by a gas chromatographic analysis approach for determining butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT) (2,6- di-t-butyl-4 methyl-hydroxybenzene) in ethylene and ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) copolymers.
ASTM D4275 test technique utilizes gas chromatography for the detection of butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT) in ethylene polymers and ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) copolymers. Stabilizers used in the production of polypropylene are separated and evaluated in order to link performance characteristics to the polymer composition. Flame ionization is used to detect the substance, and internal or external standards are used to obtain the quantitative analysis.
For ASTM D4275, BHT is extracted from a finely ground polymer sample by shaking or refluxing it with cyclohexane or isopropanol. A known volume of the extract is injected into a liquid-coated solid support gas chromatographic column. BHT is separated from the extraction solvent and other components in a stream of carrier gas passing through this column. A flame ionization detector measures the responses of BHT and any other internal standard. The relative concentration and retention time of BHT are indicated by its signal.
For ASTM D4275 test method, finely ground polymers of ethylene and ethylene-vinyl acetate copolymers are used as a test specimen.
The concentration of BHT in the polymer is reported in ppm.
The BHT content of each is calculated from the following equation:
BHT (in ppm by weight) = BV / SW
B = BHT area or peak height from sample chromatogram
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.
