This International Standard specifies a method for the determination of the viscosity number (also known as reduced viscosity) and K-value of an unplasticized poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC) resin derived from a pipe, fitting or compound. In this International Standard, only the method for isolation (or separation) of the PVC resin is detailed, while the determination of the viscosity number is given in ISO 1628-2. The presence of other additives or polymers can invalidate this method (see Clause 3).
