Molecular Weight Distribution and Molecular Weight Averages of Polyolefins ASTM D6474-20
By using high-temperature gel permeation chromatography (GPC), the ASTM D6474 test technique will determine the molecular weight distributions and averages of linear polyolefins. This test method utilizes polystyrene standards and equipment that are readily available.
The molecular weight distribution and molecular weight averages of polyethylene (excluding LDPE) and polypropylene resins are measured using the ASTM D6474-20 test procedure. Polyethylenes (excluding high-pressure low-density polyethylene – LDPE) and polypropylenes soluble in 1,2,4 trichlorobenzene (TCB) at 140 °C can be tested using this approach.
The physical qualities of these resins, such as morphology, strength, melt flow, and so on, are greatly affected by differences in molecular weight and molecular weight distribution, and as a result, the final properties of products created from these resins.
A polyolefin sample is dissolved in a solvent and injected onto the chromatographic column(s) packed with a solid substrate in this ASTM D6474-20 test technique, which separates the molecules in solution based on their size. As the separated molecules elute from the column in concentration order, they are detected and recorded. Receipt timings are transformed to molecular weights by calibration. Molecular weight concentration data are used to calculate average molecular weight parameters and molecular weight distribution.
For the ASTM D6474-20 test process, a finely ground polymer is employed as a test specimen.
As the α-olefin comonomer content in linear low-density polyethylene increases, the accuracy of the molecular weight results declines, i.e., they become increasingly underrated, according to the ASTM D6474-20 test technique.
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.
