    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    1.1This test method covers measurement of the rheological properties of polymeric materials at various temperatures and shear rates common to processing equipment. It covers measurement of melt viscosity, sensitivity, or stability of melt viscosity with respect to temperature and polymer dwell time in the rheometer, die swell ratio (polymer memory), and shear sensitivity when extruding under constant rate or stress. The techniques described permit the characterization of materials that exhibit both stable and unstable melt viscosity properties.

    1.2This test method has been found useful for quality control tests on both reinforced and unreinforced thermoplastics, cure cycles of thermosetting materials, and other polymeric materials having a wide range of melt viscosities.

    1.3The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The inch-pound units given in parentheses are for information only.

    Note 1:Although this test method and ISO 11443–1995, “Plastic—Determination of the Fluidity of Plastics Using Capillary and Slit-Die Rheometers” differ in approach or detail, the data obtained using ISO 11443, Method A is technically equivalent to this test method

    1.4This 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.
