Standard Test Methods for Density and Specific Gravity (Relative Density) of Plastics by Displacement
|Publication Date:||10 August 1998|
|ICS Code (Plastics in general):||83.080.01|
1.1 These test methods describe the determination of the specific gravity (relative density) and density of solid plastics in forms such as sheets, rods, tubes, or molded items.
1.2 Two test methods are described:
1.2.1 Test Method A--For testing solid plastics in water, and
1.2.2 Test Method B--For testing solid plastics in liquids other than water.
NOTE 1--Alternatively, Test Method D 1505 may be applied to many such forms, as well as to films and sheeting.
1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.
1.4 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.
NOTE 2--There is no similar or equivalent ISO standard.
