Standard Test Method for Moisture Absorption Properties and Equilibrium Conditioning of Polymer Matrix Composite Materials
|Publication Date:||1 March 2020|
|ICS Code (Laminated sheets):||83.140.20|
This test method covers a procedure for the determination of moisture absorption or desorption properties in the through-the-thicknes
The calculation of the through-the-thicknes
The evaluation by Procedure A of the moisture equilibrium content material property does not assume, and is therefore not limited to, single-phase Fickian diffusion behavior.
The procedures used by this test method may be performed, and the resulting data reduced, by suitable automatic equipment.
This test method is consistent with the recommendations of CMH-17 Rev G (1),2 which describes the desirable attributes of a conditioning and moisture property determination procedure.
The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system are not necessarily exact equivalents; therefore, to ensure conformance with the standard, each system shall be used independently of the other, and values from the two systems shall not be combined.
Within the text, the inch-pound units are shown in brackets.
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.
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.
