    ASTM C559

    Significance and Use

    Bulk density as determined by this test method is a basic material property of importance in manufacturing and application of carbon and graphite.

    This test method can be used for quality and process control, material characterization and description, and other purposes.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers the determination of the bulk density of manufactured articles of carbon and graphite of at least 500 mm3 volume. The bulk density is calculated to an accuracy of 0.25 %, using measurements of mass and dimensions in air at 25 ± 5°C.

    1.2 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.
