    Significance and Use

    The residue on ignition, which consists essentially of SiO2, is related to the silicon content of the silane and may be used to verify the composition of the silane.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers the determination of the residue on ignition of silanes of the type bis-(triethoxysilylpropyl)sulfane, or of admixtures of these silanes and solid carriers, such as carbon black, waxes, or organic polymers.

    1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.

    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.
