ASTM D1203

Standard Test Methods for Volatile Loss From Plastics Using Activated Carbon Methods

Organization: ASTM
Publication Date: 1 April 2020
Status: active
Page Count: 3
ICS Code (Plastics in general): 83.080.01
scope:

These test methods cover the determination of volatile loss from a plastic material under defined conditions of time and temperature, using activated carbon as the immersion medium.

Two test methods are covered as follows:

Test Method A, Direct Contact with Activated Carbon-In this test method the plastic material is in direct contact with the carbon. This test method is particularly useful in the rapid comparison of a large number of plastic specimens.

Test Method B, Wire Cage-This test method prescribes the use of a wire cage, which prevents direct contact between the plastic material and the carbon. By eliminating the direct contact, the migration of the volatile components to the surrounding carbon is minimized and loss by volatilization is more specifically measured.

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, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

NOTE 1-This standard and ISO 176 address the same subject matter, but differ in technical content.

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.
