Standard Classification System and Basis for Specification for Extruded and Compression Molded Shapes Made from Polycarbonate (PC)
|Publication Date:||1 September 2016|
|ICS Code (Rubber and plastics products in general):||83.140.01|
This classification system covers requirements and test methods for the material, dimensions, and workmanship, and the properties of extruded and compression molded plate, rod, and tubular bar manufactured from polycarbonate. This classification system allows for the use of recycled materials provided that all specifications are met.
This standard is not intended to cover materials used in glazing and signage as defined in 3.1.2 and 3.1.8. It is intended to be a means of calling out mechanical grade plastic products used for fabrication of end items or parts as defined in 3.1.3.
The properties included in this standard are those required for the compositions covered. Other requirements necessary to identify particular characteristics important to specialized applications are to be described by using the callout system given in Section 4.
The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard in all property and dimensional tables. For reference purposes, SI units are also included in Table S-PC and Table 1 only.
The following precautionary caveat pertains only to the test method portions, Section 12, 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-There is no known ISO equivalent to this standard
