    Abstract

    This specification covers the requirements for epoxy thermosetting molding compounds and provides for their identification, quality control, and purchase. Material covered in this specification consists of mixtures or blends of epoxy resins and curing agents intimately combined with fillers, reinforcements, colorants, and other chemical agents. The epoxy molding compounds are classified into grades based on physical properties, which may be further classified into classes (dielectric or flame retardant) according to special requirements. The molding compounds shall be manufactured with uniform composition and with the apparent density, bulk factor, flow, particle size, and Au: Pls. note that although caption make reference to color online, figures in print will appear in black and white. In conformity with the requirements specified. Tests for water absorption, flexural strength, impact resistance, tensile strength, deflection temperature under load, permittivity and dissipation factor, wet and dry dielectric strength, arc resistance, and flammability shall be performed and shall conform to the requirements specified.

    This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers requirements for epoxy thermosetting molding compounds. It provides for their identification, quality control, and purchase in such a manner that the purchaser and the seller can agree on the substantial similarity of different commercial lots or shipments.

    1.2 The compounds covered under this specification consist of mixtures or blends of epoxy resins and curing agents intimately combined, in an unreacted or partially reacted condition, with fillers, reinforcements, colorants, and other chemical agents.

    1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.

    Note 1The properties included in this specification are those required to identify the kinds of molding compounds covered. There may be other requirements necessary to define particular characteristics. These will be added to the specification as their inclusion becomes generally desirable and the necessary test data and methods become available.
    Note 2There is no known ISO equivalent to this standard.
