Standard Test Methods for Density of Compacted or Sintered Powder Metallurgy (PM) Products Using Archimedes’ Principle
|Publication Date:||1 April 2015|
|ICS Code (Powder metallurgy):||77.160|
This standard describes a method for measuring the density of powder metallurgy products that usually have surface-connected porosity.
The density of impermeable PM materials, those materials that do not gain mass when immersed in water, may be determined using Test Method B311.
The current method is applicable to green compacts, sintered parts, and green and sintered test specimens.
With the exception of the values for density and the mass used to determine density, for which the use of the gram per cubic centimetre (g/cm3) and gram (g) units is the longstanding industry practice, the values in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
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.
