ASTM WK15812

    New Test Methods for Standard Test Method for Measurement of Trace Impurities in Graphite by Electrothermal Vaporization Inductively Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectrometry (ETV-ICP OES)

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: D02.F0 | Committee D02 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    Analysis of metallic and non-metallic impurities in graphite and carbon materials.

    Today, ETV-ICP OES is a well established method for the measurement of metallic and non-metallic impurities in carbon and graphite materials. However, there is no ASTM standard test method available for this analysis method. For various fields of application (e.g. nuclear and semiconductor industry) the knowledge of the concentration of impurities is mandatory. The standard test method will be used for production and quality control. The keyusers will be graphite manufacturers and graphite users (incoming inspection).
