Standard Practice for Calculating Thermal Endurance of Materials from Thermogravimetric Decomposition Data
|Publication Date:||10 March 2000|
|ICS Code (Chemical analysis):||71.040.40|
This practice covers additional treatment of the Arrhenius activation energy data determined by Test Method E 1641 to develop a thermal endurance curve and derive a relative thermal index for materials.
This practice is generally applicable to materials with a well-defined decomposition profile, namely a smooth, continuous mass change with a single maximum rate.
There is no ISO standard equivalent to this practice.
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.
