Nonvolatile Content of Aqueous Adhesives ASTM D1489
The ASTM D1489 test method examines the nonvolatile content of aqueous adhesives like dextrin, starch, casein, and animal gelatin. This test method is used for monitoring the consistency of incoming products that are used in the adhesive bonding or sealing operation.
The nonvolatile content of aqueous adhesives such as dextrin, starch, casein, and animal gelatin is determined using the ASTM D1489 test technique. Tube winding, laminating, case and carton sealing, packing, bottle labelling, flat gumming, envelope sealing, and gummed tape manufacturing are just a few of the applications for aqueous adhesives non-volatile components. For adhesive selection and product homogeneity, this test method can be used to compare the nonvolatile content of various adhesives and is appropriate for quality assurance and research.
Before extracting a specimen for testing, ASTM D1489 requires a sample in a glass jar of homogeneous consistency. Each composite sample has two 10-g specimens tested. 10 g of the glue is weighed to the nearest 0.01 g and then put into a small beaker. The sample is then dispersed in 50 mL of hot distilled water and poured into a 200-mL volumetric flask. Using hot distilled water, the resulting solution is diluted to the desired mark. On each dispersion created in this manner, duplicate tests are done.
Ten millilitres of the dispersion is pipetted into a tared weighing vial that is three-quarters full with dry silica sand. Then, the sample is dried and weighed and is returned to the oven for another 5 minutes once the same weight is attained in two successive weighings. The bottle is then covered and allowed to cool to ambient temperature in a desiccator with a desiccant before being weighed to the closest 0.001 g.
Composite samples of adhesives are used in the ASTM D1489 test method as a test specimen.
As per the ASTM D1489, the percent of nonvolatile content is calculated as follows:
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.
