|Publication Date:||10 March 1996|
|ICS Code (Reinforced plastics):||83.120|
1.1 This specification covers reinforced and filled polyphenylene sulfide materials suitable for injection molding and extrusion.
1.2 This specification is not intended for the selection of materials, but only as a means to call out plastic materials to be used for the manufacture of parts. The selection of these materials is to be made by personnel with expertise in the plastics field where the environment, inherent properties of the materials, performance of the parts, part design, manufacturing process, and economics are considered.
1.3 The properties included in this specification are those required to identify the compositions covered. There may be other requirements necessary to identify particular characteristics important to specific applications. These will be agreed upon between the user and the supplier by using the suffixes as given in Section 5.
1.4 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.
1.5 This precautionary statement pertains only to the test method portion of this specification, section 13. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
