    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Describes four conventional ways for determining mass of water absorbed by a plastic test specimen of defined dimensions. Two of the methods are for use when it is desired to take account of the possible presence of water-soluble matter. Applicable to all plastics except cellular plastics and plastics that soften at the temperature of boiling water to an extent that causes them to lose their shape entirely. Covers references, principle, apparatus, test specimens, procedure, expression of results and test report.
