Standard Test Method for Determining Gas Permeability Characteristics of Plastic Film and Sheeting
|Publication Date:||10 November 1998|
|ICS Code (Films and sheets):||83.140.10|
1.1 This test method covers the estimation of the steady-state rate of transmission of a gas through plastics in the form of film, sheeting, laminates, and plastic-coated papers or fabrics. This test method provides for the determination of (1) gas transmission rate (GTR), (2) permeance, and, in the case of homogeneous materials, (3) permeability.
1.2 Two procedures are provided:
1.2.1 Procedure M- Manometric.
1.2.2 Procedure V- Volumetric.
1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.
1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, 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.>
