Organization: ASTM
Publication Date: 15 June 2017
Status: active
Page Count: 6
ICS Code (Plastics in general): 83.080.01
scope:

This test method covers the quantitative determination of moisture by means of loss in weight technology down to 50 mg/kg (50 ppm) as it applies to most plastics.

The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.

Specimens tested by this method will be hot, use caution when handling them after testing has been completed.

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.

This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
