Standard Specification for Styrene-Maleic Anhydride Materials (S/MA)
|Publication Date:||10 July 1999|
|ICS Code (Thermoplastic materials):||83.080.20|
1.1 This specification covers styrene-maleic anhydride materials suitable for molding or extrusion.
1.2 This specification is intended to be a means of calling out properties of plastic materials used in the fabrication of end items or parts. It is not intended for the selection of materials. Materials should be selected by those having expertise in the plastics field after careful consideration of the design and the performance required of the part, the environment to which it will be exposed, the fabrication process to be employed, the inherent properties of the material other than those covered by this specification, and the economics.
1.3 The properties included in this standard are those required to identify the compositions covered. There may be other requirements necessary to identify particular characteristics important to specialized applications. These will be agreed upon between the user and the supplier, by using the suffixes as given in Section 5.
1.4 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values in parentheses are given for information only.
1.5 The following precautionary caveat pertains only to the test method portion, Section 12, of this specification: This standard may involve hazardous materials, operations, and equipment. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems 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.
