|Publication Date:||1 June 2020|
|ICS Code (Thermoplastic materials):||83.080.20|
significance And Use:
5.1 This practice is useful for both quality control and research.
1.1 This practice covers determination of the color stability of a hydrocarbon resin by exposure to a specific temperature for a defined time period in a forced-draft oven.
1.2 Color stability is measured by the change in color of the test resin, measured via the yellowness index color scale, in accordance with Practice E313, or the procedure for Gardner Color, Test Method D6166.
1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
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, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
