Standard Classification for Low Molecular Weight PTFE and FEP Micronized Powders
|Publication Date:||1 September 2013|
|ICS Code (Plastics in general):||83.080.01|
This classification system provides a method of adequately identifying low molecular weight polytetrafluoroethyl
These powders are sometimes known as lubricant powders. The powders usually have a much smaller particle size than those used for molding or extrusion, and they generally are not processed alone. The test methods and properties included are those required to identify and specify the various types of fluoropolymer micronized powders. Recycled fluoropolymer materials meeting the detailed requirements of this classification are included (see Guide D7209).
These fluoropolymer micronized powders and the materials designated as filler powders (F) in ISO 12086-1 and ISO 12086-2 are equivalent.2
The values stated in SI units as detailed in IEEE/ASTM SI-10 are to be regarded as the 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, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Specific precautionary statements are given in 7.1.2.
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.
2 Designations, specifications, and test methods are included in ISO 12086-1 and 12086-2.
