Historical (view previous versions of standard)
Significance and Use
This test method is primarily concerned with the oxidation mass loss of manufactured carbon and graphite materials in air at temperatures from 371 to 677°C.
The test method will provide acceptable results at preselected test temperatures that yield less than 10 % mass loss in 100 h. These results can be used to determine relative service temperatures.
1.1 This test method provides a comparative oxidation mass loss of manufactured carbon and graphite materials in air.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
