Determination of Total Chlorine in Isocyanates ASTM D4661-18
ASTM D4661-18 test method provides information about polyurethane raw materials by measuring the chlorine content of aromatic Isocyanates. The amount of o-dichlorobenzene and other ringed chlorine products is determined by calculating the difference between total chlorine content and the hydrolyzable chlorine content. The final results are expressed in SI units.
The ASTM D4661-18 test method is important in determining the chlorine content of Isocyanates with the help of titration. This test method is important to get accurate readings at different sample concentrations. It defines a standard to control the quality and application of these Isocyanates. It characterizes the Isocyanates found in polyurethane products and is applicable for research purposes. It determines the chlorine content by destroying the organic matter of the sample. It provides information about the performance of Isocyanates in polyurethane systems which helps specify their reliability and application.
The apparatus consists of a weighing bottle and balance, oxygen ignition vessel, fuse wire, potentiometric titrator, silver electrodes, bubble counter, and a microburst. The vessels are cleaned to remove oil and grease. The sample is weighed, and iron-nickel fuse wire is attached to the electrodes. The interior surface of the vessel is filled with sodium carbonate solution and filled with oxygen. The sample is heated in a pressurized ignition vessel for test A and at atmospheric pressure in an oxygen flask for test B.
The sample size should be taken as per the requirements.
The total chlorine can be calculated as follows: Total chlorine, % ꞊ 3.55(A – B) N/W Where: A = AgNO3 the solution required for titration of the sample, mL. B = AgNO3 the solution required for titration of the blank, mL. N = normality of the AgNO3 solution, W = sample used, g, and 3.55 = constant combining the milligram atomic weight of chlorine.
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.
