ASTM D570 STANDARD TEST METHOD FOR WATER ABSORPTION OF PLASTICS
Revision Edition 98 Chg: W/ REAP Date: 00/00/05 ASTM D570
This ASTM D570 test method covers the determination of the relative rate of absorption of water by plastics when immersed. This ASTM D570 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 0.13 mm [0.005 in.] or greater in thickness.
The values given in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The values stated in brackets are for information only.
This ASTM D570 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.
NOTE ”ISO 62 is technically equivalent to this ASTM D570 test method
