ASTM C336 Fiber Elongation to check Annealing and Strain Point of Glass
ASTM C336 is used to measure the viscosity of the glass and provides valuable data about the strain points, annealing points, and setting thresholds for seals. It was proposed that the viscosities at the strain point and annealing point should be 1014.50 and 1013.00 poise respectively at 4°C temperature. Viscosity is expressed in poise.
By calculating the viscous elongation rate of the fiber of the given glass, using ASTM C336, the annealing and strain points of the glass can be determined. ASTM C336 provides information to develop an appropriate annealing schedule, stress release estimation, and estimation of setting points for seals.
ASTM C336 test takes place in a specialized furnace made up of a copper core with a glass fiber attachment. After the formation of glass at a high temperature, it is cooled carefully, typically at 4°C. The size and diameter of the given sample are measured. The following factors are evaluated while assessing the strain and annealing points; choice of glass, optical lever adjustment, temperature correction, fiber support, cooling rate, sample length, expansion, and viscosity.
Specimen Size :
For ASTM C336 testing, the specimen size can be up to 6 cm in length.
The viscosities are calculated by using the following formula
ηis the viscosity (poise), L denotes effective fiber length (cm), mg represents suspended force (dynes), d denotes fiber diameter (cm) and e is the elongation rate (cm/sec).

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.
