Standard Test Method for Compressibility of Metal Powders in Uniaxial Compaction
|Publication Date:||1 October 2020|
|ICS Code (Powder metallurgy):||77.160|
This laboratory test method covers the determination of the compressibility of metal powders and metal powder mixtures as measured by the extent to which a test portion can be densified under controlled conditions in a specified die.
Units-With the exception of the values for density and mass, for which the use of gram per cubic centermetre (g/cm3) and gram (g) units is the longstanding industry practice, the values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered 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.
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.
