Organization: ASTM International
Publication Date: 1 March 2021
Status: active
Page Count: 3
ICS Code (Thermosetting materials): 83.080.10
significance And Use:

4.1 In general, with materials of this type, softening does not take place at a definite temperature. As the temperature rises, these materials gradually and imperceptibly change from brittle... View More

scope:

1.1 This test method covers the determination of the softening point of certain alkali-soluble resins having uniform plastic flow characteristics as the melting point is approached.

1.2 The resin manufacturer should specify whether or not this test method may be used for his product(s).

1.3 This test method is not suitable for styrene-maleic anhydride resins.

Note 1: For testing rosin and other resins, see Test Method E28. For testing asphalts, tars, and pitches, see Test Method D2398.

1.4 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.

1.5 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.
