Standard Test Method for Color Determination of Plastic Pellets
This variation in the cooling of the pellets can result in different levels of crystallinity in the pellets only. Any test specimen preparation, conditioning, dimensions, or testing parameters, or a combination thereof, covered in the materials specification shall take precedence over those mentioned in this test method.
This will result in differences in pellet opacity. It is possible that each material will have unique characteristics that determine the color values. For example, compare translucent disc-shaped pellets to translucent disc-shaped pellets, not with opaque, rectangular shaped pellets. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard.
Color measurements can be useful for comparing resins in pellet form when all samples are similar in shape and size. Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard. The values given in ast are for information only. If there are no material specifications, then default conditions apply.
Standard – Standard Test Method for Color Determination of Plastic Pellets ASTM D –
This variation asttm pellet appearance, due to varying levels of crystallinity, does not affect final properties. Some materials, such as polyamide nyloncan be cooled very differently during the production of the pellets.
Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. The pellet shape is independent of the crystallinity of the material. More crystalline nylons will be more opaque than amorphous nylons. The test method shall be used only to compare specimens of similar pellet shape, size, texture, and degree of translucency.
It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
The measurement is made on pellets and based on tristimulus values obtained with a spectrophotometer or colorimeter.
