ASTM D5630 PDF

ASTM D Ash Content. The purpose of this test is to determine the inorganic content of plastics. There are two methods described: Procedure A, Muffle. Reprinted from the Annual Book of ASTM Standards. This standard is issued under the fixed designation D ; the number immediately following the. This test method was developed to determine the inorganic content of plastics by destructive ashing procedures. Ash levels of % or above are covered.

For more efficient ashing, the plastic sample should be in the form of powder or pellet. Active view current version of standard. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. D530 quantitative amounts of each awtm important variables of the manufacturing process. Aatm Method D is recommended for unknown samples, and in instances where fusion of the inorganic portions may be of concern.

Identification of Filler If the supplied material has mineral filler an FTIR analysis of the ash residue can help to further identify the type of mineral. Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard.

This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use.

It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

Note 1 — For more efficient ashing, the plastic sample should be in the aetm of powder or pellet.

However, this method may not provide the absolute filler content in all cases. An Ash test is used to determine if a material is filled. TGA Thermogravimetric Analysis is an alternative method to determine filler content with smaller samples sizes. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.

Six grams of sample is typically used, which represents three crucibles each containing two grams of sample. Active view current version of standard Translated Standard: The test will identify the total filler content.

Samples are ignited and ashed in a muffle furnace. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. Smaller sample weights can be tested but accuracy diminishes with smaller sample sizes. Standards can be obtained from appropriate standards authorities.

Ash levels of 0. Samples are flamed over a burner prior to being ashed in a muffle furnace. Test Method D is recommended for unknown samples, and in instances where fusion of the inorganic portions may be of concern.

See Section 9 for specific precautionary statements. Ash levels of 0. An ash test cannot be used to determine the percent carbon fiber or percent carbon black since carbon burns off during the Ash test. A magnified optical examination of the ash residue is performed to determine if the ash is glass, mineral, or d56300 combination of both.
