Standard Test Methods for Rubber Chemicals—Determination of Percent Insoluble Sulfur by Solvent Extraction
|Publication Date:||10 December 2002|
|ICS Code (Rubber compounding ingredients):||83.040.20|
1.1 These test methods provide for the determination of solvent insoluble materials in a sulfur sample. The two test methods available are: (1) Test Method A, Extraction by Carbon Disulfide, and (2) Test Method B, Extraction by Toluene. If there are no other solvent insoluble materials present in the sulfur, these test methods determine the insoluble sulfur content directly. If other materials are also present, additional testing is necessary to identify what portion of the insolubles is insoluble sulfur.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.
1.3 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 and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. For a specific hazard statement, see 5.1.
