1.1 This specification covers thermoplastic molding compounds composed of a copolymer of vinyl chloride and vinylidene chloride in the approximate ratio of 10 to 90, with suitable plasticizers, stabilizers, dyes, and pigments. The molding compounds are suitable for compression, injection, or extrusion molding.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. Note 1-The properties included in this specification are those required to identify the types of molding materials covered. There may be other requirements necessary to identify 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 2-There is no similar or equivalent ISO standard.
1.3 The following precautionary caveat pertains only to the test method portion, Section 8, of this specification. 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.
