Organization: ASTM
Publication Date: 1 August 2017
Status: active
Page Count: 11
ICS Code (Plastics in general): 83.080.01
scope:

This test method covers determination of the temperature at which a specified needle penetration occurs when specimens are subjected to specified controlled test conditions

This test method is not recommended for ethyl cellulose, nonrigid poly(vinyl chloride), poly(vinylidene chloride), or other materials having a wide Vicat softening range

The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units are included in this standard

Due to the potential safety and environmental hazards associated with mercury-filled thermometers, the use of alternative temperature measuring devices (such as thermocouples and RTDs) is encouraged with liquid-in-glass thermometers containing mercury, the use of alternative measuring devices, such as digital thermometers using thermocouple of RTD sensors is encouraged

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, health and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use

NOTE 1-This test method is equivalent to ISO 306 in all sections with the exceptions of the allowance for creep, prior to the beginning of the test and the allowance of the fluidized powder as a heat transfer medium

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
