Standard Test Method for Color Determination of Plastic Pellets

The values given in parentheses are aatm information only. The measurement is made on pellets and based on tristimulus values obtained with a spectrophotometer or colorimeter. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.

Color measurements can astj useful for comparing resins in pellet form when all samples are similar in shape and size. This variation in pellet appearance, due to varying levels of crystallinity, does not affect final properties.


Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. This variation in the cooling of the pellets can result in different levels of crystallinity in the pellets only. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.

ASTM D – 18 Standard Test Method for Color Determination of Plastic Pellets

More crystalline nylons will be more opaque than amorphous nylons. For example, compare translucent disc-shaped pellets to translucent disc-shaped pellets, not with opaque, rectangular shaped pellets. The pellet shape is independent of the crystallinity of the material.

Some materials, such as polyamide nyloncan be cooled very differently during the production of the pellets. Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard. The test method shall be used only to compare specimens of similar pellet d62900, size, texture, and degree of translucency.

This test method should not asttm used for general material specifications. 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.

This will result in differences in pellet opacity. Any test specimen preparation, conditioning, dimensions, or testing parameters, or a combination thereof, covered in the materials specification shall take precedence over those mentioned in this test method. If there are no material specifications, then default conditions apply. It is possible that each material will have unique characteristics that determine the color values.
