|Publication Date:||1 October 2016|
|ICS Code (Thermoplastic materials):||83.080.20|
This practice covers the preparation of a sample for polyethylene density determination in accordance with Test Method D1505. The sample consists of a strand produced by extrusion of the polyethylene in accordance with Test Method D1238, Condition 190/2.16 (Melt Index).
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
