Standard Test Method for Determining the Chemical Resistance of Fiberglass-Reinforced Thermosetting Resins by One-Side Panel Exposure


1.1 This test method is intended for use in the evaluation of the chemical resistance of fiberglass-reinforced thermosetting resins that are subjected to one-side panel exposure to specific environments. It takes into consideration the coldwall effects and radiation losses of heat transfer through the laminate wall.

1.2 This test method is supplemental to Practice C 581 and does not supersede it.

Note 1—There is no similar or equivalent ISO standard.

1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, 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.
