|Publication Date:||10 September 1998|
|ICS Code (Thermosetting materials):||83.080.10|
This test method covers the determination of the softening point of certain alkali-soluble resins having uniform plastic flow characteristics as the melting point is approached.
The resin manufacturer should specify whether or not this test method may be used for his product(s).
This test method is not suitable for styrene-maleic anhydride resins.
NOTE 1 - For testing rosin and other resins, see Test Method E 28. For testing asphalts, tars, and pitches, see Test Method D 2398.
