The thickness shall be 3. D – D Test specimens are molded under specified conditions. Users of this standard are expressly advised that determination of the validity of any such patent rights, and the risk awtm infringement of such rights, are entirely their own responsibility.

Each material was supplied in granular form to each of the testing laboratories by a single supplier.

Current edition approved Nov. The correct change-over point shall therefore be adjusted individually for each value of the injection speed and for each material under test. Last previous edition approved in as D – Adherence d955-08 the specied mold design see 7.

The data in Tables should not be rigorously applied to acceptance or rejected of material, as those data are specic to the round robin and may not be representative of other lots, conditions, materials, or laboratories.

NOTE 2—Although scribe marks are not required, if they are used for injection or compression molded specimens for the measurement of shrinkage, the scribe marks shall be 1.

Poorer precision larger values of Sr and r would be expected if the same operator were to shutdown and then restart the injection molding machine on the same day with the same mold, material and operating set points. Standards Subsctiption may be the perfect solution. Standards Subscriptions from ANSI provides a money-saving, multi-user solution for accessing standards.

If the document is revised or amended, you will be notified by email. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. The temperature of the heating cylinder and the mold shall be maintained at a point which, on a cycle selected, will produce temperature within the range recommended by the material molding standard.

The decrease in the cavity pressure at hold to zero indicates that the material in the gate has solidied sufficiently to stop ow into the cavity. The mold shall have at one end a gate 6. Differences in mold shrinkage may also be observed between the three specimen geometries described in this test method.

Begin with a short shot to ensure the ow front is straight and not radial and that the ow is laminar and does not exhibit melt fracture jetting. Webprint Printed and bound.

ASTM D – 08 Standard Test Method of Measuring Shrinkage from Mold Dimensions of Thermoplastics

The length or diameter of the cavity is measured depending on shape of mold. ASTM International takes no position respecting the validity qstm any patent rights asserted in connection with any item mentioned in this standard. Report mold shrinkage in both ow and cross direction to two signicant qstm. Monitoring Standards monitoring is a free service designed for you who wish to be alerted of changes to or new editions of the standards required in your work.


Due to the inertia of the injection-molding machine, the effective change-over time is longer than its nominal value.

Users of this test method should apply the principles outlined in Practice E aatm generate data specic to their laboratory and materials, or between specic laboratories. NOTE 3—If the injection machines of appropriate capacity are not available, the requirements of 7.

This standard is not included in any packages. Factors, such as the amount of material satm charge, cooling time, and pressure application are known to affect shrinkage signicantly. The moment new editions of the standards you monitor are released, changes are made, or appendixes are published, you will be alerted by email. Mold shrinkage is calculated as inches per inch or percent or mm per mm for the specified dimensions and conditions.

It is the intent of this method to control and document as many of d95508 variables as possible. Please first log in with a verified email before subscribing to alerts. As the cooling rate of the material is proportional to the square of the reciprocal of the thickness, the minimum cooling time for the cavity can be expected to be close to 1.
