Standard Test Method for Carbon Black—Iodine Adsorption Number
|Publication Date:||1 July 2005|
|ICS Code (Rubber compounding ingredients):||83.040.20|
1.1 This test method covers the determination of the iodine adsorption number of carbon black.
1.1.1 Procedure A is the original procedure for this determination.
1.1.2 Procedure B specifies an increased sample mass of carbon black and volume of iodine solution (the ratio is the same as in Procedure A) which results in a simplified formula for the calculation of the iodine number.
1.3 The iodine adsorption number of carbon black has been shown to decrease with sample aging. New SRB HT Iodine Standards have been produced that exhibit stable iodine number upon aging. These SRB HT Iodine Standards are recommended for daily monitoring (x-charts) of testing and for standardization of iodine testing (see Section 10) when target values cannot be obtained.
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.
