Organization: ASTM
Publication Date: 1 September 2009
Status: inactive
Page Count: 3
ICS Code (Plastics in general): 83.080.01
scope:

The practice describes a procedure for separating recycled plastics based on their color (for example, green versus colorless) and a procedure for washing dirty, ground plastic which results in separation of light materials (density less than 1.00 g/cm3). This practice is not intended to represent generic washing procedures used in the plastics recycling industry. The described procedures are solely for preparation of plastic samples for use in other analytical tests. The procedure includes a room temperature wash step to facilitate separation of paper (for example, labels) followed by washing at an elevated temperature.

NOTE 1-Although not presented as a quantitative method, the procedure presented in this practice may be used to provide quantitative results. The user assumes the responsibility to verify the reproducibility of quantitative results.

The values stated in SI units 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 and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

NOTE 2-There is no known ISO equivalent to this practice.

*A Summary of Changes section appears at the end of this standard.
