Significance and Use
The total carbon content of a carbon black is a requirement for the calculation and reporting of carbon dioxide emissions. It can also be used in calculations to estimate yield of the process.
1.1 This test method covers the instrumental determination of carbon content in a carbon black sample. Values obtained represent the total carbon content.
1.2 The method is applicable to tread, carcass and specialty type carbon blacks obtained from partial combustion or thermal decomposition processes, which typically contain 95-100 % carbon.
1.3 The results of these tests can be expressed as mass % carbon.
1.4 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
1.5 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.
