Water Absorption ASTM D570
The data sheds light on the performance of the materials in water or humid environments. Inspection Validating the specifications, value and safety of your raw materials, products and assets. For materials of widely varying density, relation between water-absorption values on a volume as well as a weight basis may need to be considered.
Global Reach Intertek is the industry leader with over 42, people in 1, locations in over countries. Auditing Consulting Sourcing Training.
For example, Table 1 shows the time to approximate time saturation for various thickness of nylon Immediately upon cooling the specimens are weighed. Testing Evaluating how your products and services meet and exceed quality, safety, sustainability and performance standards. For the water absorption test, the specimens are dried in an oven for a specified time and temperature and then placed in a desiccator to cool.
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. Validating the specifications, value and safety of your raw materials, products and assets.
ASTM D570 – 98(2010)e1

ASTM D – 98() Standard Test Method for Water Absorption of Plastics
This test method is intended to apply to the testing of all types of plastics, including cast, hot-molded, and cold-molded resinous products, and both homogeneous and laminated plastics in rod and tube form and in sheets 0. Assurance Testing Inspection Certification.
With nonhomogeneous materials, such as laminated forms, the rate of water absorption may be widely different through each edge and surface. Enabling you to identify and mitigate the intrinsic risk in your operations, supply chains and business processes. Time to saturation is strongly dependent on specimen thickness.
Formally confirming that your products and services meet all trusted external and internal standards. Evaluating how your products and services meet and exceed quality, safety, sustainability and performance standards. Send us a request Need help or have a question? Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. Send us a request Wilton UK: The effect upon these properties of change in moisture content due to water absorption depends largely on the type of exposure by immersion in water or by exposure to high humidityshape of the part, and inherent properties of the asgm.
Water absorption is used to determine the amount of water absorbed under specified conditions. Factors affecting water absorption include: Certification Formally confirming that your products and services meet all trusted external asstm internal standards.
Standards can be obtained from appropriate standard authorities. Even for otherwise homogeneous materials, it may be slightly greater through cut edges than through molded surfaces.
Two inch diameter disks, 0. Assurance Enabling you to identify and asttm the intrinsic risk in your operations, supply chains and business processes. Consequently, attempts to correlate water absorption with the surface area must generally be limited to closely related materials and to similarly shaped specimens: This second function is particularly applicable to sheet, rod, and tube arms when the test is made on the finished product.
Specimens are removed, patted x570 with a lint free cloth, and weighed.
