Standard Test Method for Determination of Reactivity of Unsaturated Polyesters and Vinyl Esters at 180.0F [82.2°C]
|Publication Date:||1 May 2004|
|ICS Code (Esters):||71.080.70|
1.1 This standard provides a standardized test method for determining the gelation and exotherm curve of unsaturated polyester and vinyl ester resins. This method provides guidance for measurement of the "Standard 180°F [82.2°C] Exotherm Curve" along with information on variances of the measurement which may be required for special resins. This test method provides information concerning the reactivity of unsaturated polyester and vinyl ester resins as they go through polymerization after mixing with the initiator.
Note 1-There is no known ISO Equivalent to this standard, although ISO 584 is similar.
1.2 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with 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.
