ASTM WK26629

    Work Item: ASTM WK26629 - New Test Method for Measuring Nonvolatile Residue Dry Contact Transfer in Polymer Materials

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: E21.05 | Committee E21 | Contact Staff Manager

    1. Scope

    This test method describes how to prepare a dry contact transfer sample for measurement of nonvolatile residue (NVR). It also describes how to measure the NVR transferred with a Fourrier Transform Infrared Spectrometer (FTIR).

    NASA uses more than one method to measure dry contact transfer of nonvolatile residue. A standard method for preparing and measuring samples will aid industry in meeting NASA and DoD sponsor desires for comparing materials.


    contamination, polymer, hydrocarbon, silicone

    The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
