Most regulators designed for Test Method D cannot control better than Thus, this test is able to detect and follow profound changes which occur during extrusion, injection molding, milling, or mixing.

ASTM D Flow Rates for Poly Vinyl Chloride – Instron

Originally published as D — Contact Us View Accessories Catalog. An alternative thermoregulator is suggested for improved temperature control. ASTM Zstm takes no position respecting the validity of any patent rights asserted in connection with any item mentioned in this standard.

How can we help you? Description Contact Us This test method is used for quality-control tests on PVC compounds that have a wide range of melt viscosities. If instability still occurs, particularly at high?

If you feel that your comments have not received a fair hearing you should make your views known to the ASTM Committee on Standards, at the address shown below.

Make the cut quickly and neatly for best precision. For each material, all the samples were prepared at one source, but the individual specimens were prepared at the laboratories which tested them. Viscosity Shear Rate 1? Subscribe to Instron News! Next Checking to see if you are a returning visitor…. Check this box to receive pertinent commercial email from Instron focusing on products, upcoming events, and more! This test is specific to the measurement of Melt Flow Rates MFR or MFI of poly vinyl chloride compounds while detecting and controlling various polymer instabilities associated with the flow rate.


Report as percent PVC instability. The quantity of material introduced into the barrel is 2. NOTE 4—A positive instability probably indicates that crosslinking is occurring. Current research for multiweight testing has reached levels of 50 kg and these are particularly good for rigid PVC. However, as a one-point measure of flow relative to shear rate, its one drawback is that the same PVC melt flow values can be obtained for materials having different processibility; the chance of this happening is minimized, however, if the compounds are similar in composition.

The sensitivity of the material to temperature necessitates slightly tighter controls than those stated in Test Method D Glossary of Materials Testing Terms.

The sensitivity of this test method makes it useful for correlating with processing conditions and as an aid in predicting changes in processing. Bluehill LE for Basic Testing. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.

These changes are due to three types of measured instability in polymers: The measured MFR value was found equal to 7. Thus, this test is able to detect and follow profound changes which occur during wstm, injection molding, milling, or mixing.

For PVC, N varies from 0. Each laboratory obtained three test results for each material.


WaveMatrix 2 for Dynamic Testing. Email addresses can only contain letters, numbers and the following special characters: A superscript epsilon e indicates an editorial change since the last revision or reapproval.

ASTM D3364 Flow Rates for Poly Vinyl Chloride

A number in parentheses indicates the year of last reapproval. Thus, implications with respect to PVC molecular structural changes can be detected and predicted.

Current edition approved March 10, If charging time is greater than 1 min, clean out the instrument and repeat the procedure. Users of this standard are expressly advised that determination of the validity of any such patent rights, and the risk of infringement of such rights, are entirely their own responsibility. A clean sharp cut is desirable so that succeeding portions will extrude straight, not curled.

Divide the difference by the average and multiply by Since Q is the volumetric? 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.

At least twice a day check the ori? By continuing to use our site, astn accept our cookie policy. As a guide, each specimen should be about 20 to 30 mm long. This weight is effective for all semirigid PVC and even some nonrigid compounds.

The instrument is now ready for the next test. We use cookies to improve your browsing experience. The following explanations of r and R
