Standard Test Method for Measurement of Properties of Thermoplastic Materials by Screw-Extrusion Capillary Rheometer
|Publication Date:||1 December 2017|
|ICS Code (Thermoplastic materials):||83.080.20|
This test method covers the use of a screw-extrusiontype capillary rheometer for the measurement of flow properties of thermoplastics and thermoplastic compounds. The measured flow properties, which are obtained through laboratory investigation, may help to describe the material behavior that occurs in factory processing.
Since a screw-type capillary rheometer imparts shear energy to the material during testing, the measurements will usually differ from those obtained with a piston-type capillary rheometer (see Test Method D3835).
Capillary rheometer measurements for thermoplastics and thermoplastic compounds are described in Test Method D3835.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard.
