Standard Test Method for Particle Size Distribution of Metal Powders and Related Compounds by Light Scattering
|Publication Date:||1 May 2010|
This test method covers the determination of the particle size distribution by light scattering, reported as volume percent, of particulate materials including metals and compounds.
This test method applies to analyses with both aqueous and nonaqueous dispersions. In addition, analysis can be performed with a gaseous dispersion for materials that are hygroscopic or react with a liquid carrier.
This test method is applicable to the measurement of particulate materials in the range of 0.4 to 2000 µm, or a subset of that range, as applicable to the particle size distribution being measured.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.
