Research Report RR:G04-1000
This ASTM Research Report evaluates the repeatability and reproducibility of the ASTM G72 Test Method for determining the Autogenous Ignition Temperature (AIT) of polymeric materials in high-pressure gaseous oxygen. Five different common polymeric materials were evaluated by five different test laboratories using the standardized procedures and apparatus of ASTM G72. Each laboratory determined the AIT exhibited by each material under the test conditions and replicated the testing on five samples per material. The results were compiled and analyzed statistically to estimate the repeatability between the samples, within a laboratory, and the reproducibility for the materials between different laboratories.
