Significance and Use
These test methods are suitable for process control, for product acceptance, and for research and development.
1.1 These test methods cover the determination of metals in rubber compounding materials by flame atomic absorption.
1.2 The test methods include the following materials:
1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
1.4 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. (For a specific warning statement, see 6.1.)
2. Referenced Documents (purchase separately) The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.
2.2.1 Literature pertinent to the particular atomic absorption spectrophotometric equipment used for the analysis especially the manufacturers recommendations for optimum performance. Standard texts on atomic absorption by flame technique are also helpful.
