    Significance and Use

    5.1 Performance verification or calibration is essential to the accurate determination of quantitative dimension change measurements.

    5.2 This test method may be used for instrument performance validation, regulatory compliance, research and development and quality assurance purposes.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method describes calibration of the length change (deflection) measurement or thermal expansion of thermomechanical analyzers (TMAs) within the temperature range from –150 °C to 1000 °C using the thermal expansion of a suitable reference material.

    1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

    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, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

    1.4 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
