Standard Test Methods for Oil Content, Oil-Impregnation Efficiency, and Interconnected Porosity of Sintered Powder Metallurgy (PM) Products Using Archimedes’ Principle
|Publication Date:||1 May 2011|
This standard describes three related test methods that cover the measurement of physical properties of oil-impregnated powder metallurgy products.
Determination of the volume percent of oil contained in the material.
Determination of the efficiency of the oil-impregnation process.
Determination of the percent interconnected porosity by oil impregnation.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values in parentheses are converted in accordance with IEEE/ASTM SI 10 and are for information only.
