    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    CONTAINED IN VOL. 08.03, 2014 Describes the inherent viscosity of poly(ethylene terephthalate) (PET) soluble at 0.50% concentration in a [60/40] phenol/1,1,2,2-tetrachloroethane solution by means of a glass capillary viscometer.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    1.1 This test method is for the determination of the inherent viscosity of poly(ethylene terephthalate) (PET) soluble at 0.50 % concentration in a 60/40 phenol/1,1,2,2-tetrachloroethane solution by means of a glass capillary viscometer. Highly crystalline forms of PET that are not soluble in this solvent mixture will require a different procedure.

    1.2 The inherent viscosity values obtained by this test method are comparable with those obtained using differential viscometry described in Test Method D 5225.

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

    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. Specific hazards statements are given in Section 8.
