Lead and Cadmium Externally Decorated with Ceramic Glass Enamels ASTM C927
ASTM C927 test method helps determine the Lead and Cadmium extracted by acetic acid from the lip and rim area of glass tumblers used for drinking and externally decorated with ceramic glass enamels. The discharge of lead and cadmium from the decorated area can be accelerated by this test.
The ASTM C927 test is used to determine how much lead and cadmium has been removed from the lip and rim area of glass tumblers with ceramic glass enamels on the exterior. This is a lead and cadmium-specific test technique. The number of metals gathered from one test specimen in comparison to another test specimen can be utilized to distinguish between them. This ASTM C927 test can help speed the removal of lead and cadmium from the decorated area.
For ASTM C927 test, lead and cadmium are extracted from the test sample’s lip and rim region by leaching it for 24 hours in a 4% acetic acid solution at (20 to 24°C), then quantified using atomic absorption spectrophotometry with appropriate hollow cathode or electrodeless discharge lamps for lead and cadmium, respectively. The detection limits for lead and cadmium for specific instruments are then reported. The results are presented as a percentage of the internal volume of the glass sample in micrograms per milliliter (ppm). The detection limits for lead range from 0.01 to 0.03 µg/mL and for cadmium range from 0.0005 to 0.0010 µg/mL .
Specimen Size :
Glassware of chemically resistant borosilicate glass is used as an ASTM C927 test specimen.
The total amount of lead or cadmium, A, in micrograms is calculated as:
A = C × V₁
The total amount of lead or cadmium, A, in parts per million is calculated as:
A = (C × V₁)/V₂ where,
C = concentration of lead or cadmium in leaching solution, µg/mL V₁ = volume of leaching solution, mL V₂ = internal volume of sample, mL
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.
