Organization: ASTM International
Publication Date: 10 January 2003
Status: inactive
Page Count: 3
ICS Code (Reinforced plastics): 83.120
significance And Use:

The void content of a composite may significantly affect some of its mechanical properties. Higher void contents usually mean lower fatigue resistance, greater susceptibility to water penetration... View More

scope:

1.1 These test methods cover the void content of reinforced plastics or "composites." The test methods are applicable to composites for which the effects of ignition on the materials are known. Most plastics, glass, and asbestos reinforcements fall into this class. These test methods are not applicable to composites for which the effects of ignition on the plastics, the reinforcement, and any fillers are unknown. This class may include silicone resins, which do not burn off completely, reinforcements consisting of metals, organic materials, or inorganic materials which may gain or lose weight, and fillers consisting of oxides, carbonates, etc., which may gain or lose weight. Note that separate weight loss tests of individual materials will usually, but not necessarily, give the same result as when all the materials are combined.

Note 1-There is no known ISO equivalent to these test methods.

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.
