    ASTM D4315

    Significance and Use

    These test methods may be used for quality control of zinc oxide used as a compounding material and for research and development studies where zinc oxide is used in a rubber mix.

    1. Scope

    1.1 These test methods cover chemical and physical tests for zinc oxide that are considered to be important to its use in rubber compounding.

    1.2 The tests appear in the following order:

    TestSection
    Zinc Oxide5
    Lead and Cadmium6
    Sulfur7
    Heat Loss8
    Surface Area9
    Sieve Residue10

    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 For specific precautions, see 5.2.
