ASTM D1510-21

Standard Test Method for Carbon Black - Iodine Adsorption Number

1.1This test method covers the determination of the iodine adsorption number of carbon black.

1.1.1Method A is the original test method for this determination and Method B is an alternate test method using automated sample processing and analysis.

1.2The iodine adsorption number of carbon black has been shown to decrease with sample aging. Iodine Number reference materials have been produced that exhibit stable iodine number upon aging. One or more of these reference materials are recommended for daily monitoring (x-charts) to ensure that the results are within the control limits of the individual reference material. Use all Iodine Number reference materials from a set for standardization of iodine testing (see Section 8) when target values cannot be obtained.

1.3The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

1.4This 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.

1.5This 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.
