Sulfide Resistance of Ceramic Decorations on Glass ASTM C777
ASTM C777 test method, helps determine the sulfide resistance of ceramic decorations on glass in order to ensure the decoration’s essential durability. This test method also generates hydrogen sulfide gas which is highly toxic in nature. ASTM C777 also gives an indication of performance when the decorations are subjected to sulfide attacks.
The ASTM C777 test method is used to measure the sulfide resistance of ceramic decorations on glass in order to ensure their vital durability. This test qualitatively determines the degree of attack upon a ceramic decoration, by a nominal 4% acetic acid solution containing 1 mL of saturated sodium sulfide solution per 100 ml of the acetic acid solution, through a visual assessment. ASTM C777 also gives an indication of performance when the decorations are subjected to sulfide attacks.
Half of the specimens are immersed in a 4 % acetic acid solution containing 1 mL of saturated sodium sulfide solution per 100 mL of acetic acid solution in a suitably closed container at room temperature for ASTM C777. A duplicate piece of ware (not exposed to the solution) is kept with the decoration under study as an extra aid in measuring the degree of chemical activity on the specimen under test. After 15 minutes, the specimens are taken from the solution and left to dry in the air. After 15 minutes, an eye examination determines the severity of the attack.
Specimen Size :
A glass (of known resistance) with ceramic decorations is used as an ASTM C777 test specimen.
The specimen being tested, as well as the decorating substance utilized in ASTM C777, must be recognized. The degree of attack is graded according to the following visual test grades:
● No signs of an attack. ● When viewed at a 45° angle, there is an appearance of stain on the surface, although it is not visible if the angle is less than 30°. ● A distinct strain that does not distort reflected light. ● The surface is dull or matte, with the possibility of chalking.
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.
