Organization: ASTM International
Publication Date: 1 November 2007
Status: inactive
Page Count: 7
ICS Code (Other rubber and plastics products): 83.140.99
scope:

1.1 This test method covers the evaluation of specific light-transmitting and wide-angle-light-scattering properties of planar sections of materials such as essentially transparent plastic. Two procedures are provided for the measurement of luminous transmittance and haze. Procedure A uses a hazemeter as described in Section and Procedure B uses a spectrophotometer as described in Section . Material having a haze value greater than 30 % is considered diffusing and should be tested in accordance with Practice E 167.

1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. Note 1For greater discrimination among materials that scatter a high percent of light within a narrow forward angle, such as is the case with abraded transparent plastics, adjust the hazemeter and perform measurements in accordance with Test Method D 1044.

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.

This test method is not equivalent to ISO 13468-1 and ISO/DIS 14782.
