New Test Methods for Standard Test Methods for Carbon Black Content and Ash Content of Polyolefin Geosynthetics

1. Scope

2.1 The scope of the Committee shall be the formulation of test methods, specifications, guides, practices, terminology, and the dissemination of knowledge dealing with geosynthetics. This would include but not be limited to geotextiles, geogrids, drainage nets, drainage composites, geosynthetic clay liners, geosynthetic erosion control products and sediment retention devices, geosynthetic strips, geofoam and geomembranes.
2.2. The formulation of test methods, specifications, guides, practices and terminology for Geosynthetic related products shall be considered by the Committee by establishment of special subcommittees approved by the Executive Subcommittee.
2.3 The work of this Committee will be coordinated with other ASTM committees or organizations having mutual interest.

Keywords

carbon black; ash content; gravimetric; plastics; polymer:polyolefins:

Rationale

There is currently no standard test method within ASTM committee D35 on Geosynthetics that covers carbon black content determination. A standard method is needed within the committee to address specific concerns with multi-component and specially compounded polymers.

The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
