Standard Test Method for Dye Penetration of Solid Fiberglass Reinforced Pultruded Stock
|Publication Date:||1 January 1996|
|ICS Code (Reinforced plastics):||83.120|
1.1 This dye-penetrant test method is a means of evaluating solid fiberglass reinforced pultruded rock stock for longitudinal wicking. There are generally three mechanisms that promote wicking, any or all of which may be operating at a given time.
Note 1-The specimen's cross-section may reflect delaminations, longitudinal continuous voids, or the presence of hollow fibers, or all three. Occasionally these flaws may be detected by this test, but other tests are usually required.
1.2 The results of a wicking test are dependent on specimen type and size, penetrant type, time of exposure in the penetrant, penetrant viscosity, etc. Any attempt to use a wicking test to establish specification criteria should be made with great care.
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. For specific hazard statements, see 10.3 and 10.6.
Note 2- There is no similar or equivalent ISO standard.
