|Publication Date:||1 November 2003|
|ICS Code (Thermoplastic materials):||83.080.20|
1.1 This test method outlines a procedure for the determination of oxidative-induction time (OIT) of polymeric materials by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). It is applicable to polyolefin resins that are in a fully stabilized/compounde
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. Specific hazards information is given in Section 8.
Note 1-This test method is similar to ISO 11357-6, but not equivalent. ISO procedure provides additional information not supplied by this test method.
