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.
