ASTM WK25458

    New Test Method for for the analysis of Total Fluorine, Chlorine, Bromine and Sulfur in Plastics and solid waste materials by Oxidative Pyrohydrolytic Combustion followed by Ion Chromatography Detection (Combustion Ion Chromatography-CIC)

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: D20.70.02 | Committee D20 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    This test method covers the individual determination of total fluorine, chlorine, bromine and sulfur in plastics and polymers. Samples containing 0.1 to 10,000 mg/kg of each element can be analyzed.

    Determine presence or absence total Fluorine, Chlorine, Bromine and Sulfur in Plastics and waste materials.
