ASTM D1505 The density of Plastics by the Density-Gradient Technique
The standard method ASTM D1505 determines the density of plastic materials. This test method involves measuring the level to which a test specimen sinks in a liquid column exhibiting a density gradient. The values expressed in SI units should be considered as standard.
The standard test method, Density of Plastics by the Density-Gradient Technique ASTM D1505, determines the density of plastic materials. This test procedure is intended to produce findings that are accurate to within 0.05 percent. The density of a solid is a readily quantifiable attribute that is widely used to track physical changes in a sample, as a measure of sample uniformity, and as a means of identification.
In ASTM D1505 testing, wet specimens are placed in tubes and are required to reach equilibrium. Then thin films are required to settle, and the height of the specimens is measured by a cathetometer; after that, the samples are removed by means of a clock motor. The procedure should be performed at a low rate so that the density remains undisturbed.
Specimen thicknesses should range from 0.025 to 0.051 mm (0.001 to 0.002 in.).
The following formula is used to calculate density in ASTM D1505 testing:
Density at x = a +[(x – y)(b – a)/(z – y)] where: a and b = densities of the two standard floats y and z = distances of the two standard x = distance of unknown above the same arbitrary level
The standard test method, Density of Plastics by the Density-Gradient Technique ASTM D1505, determines the density of plastic materials.
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.
