This test method should not be used for general material specifications.

The values given in parentheses are for information only. 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.

Standard Test Method for Color Determination of Plastic Pellets

This variation in pellet appearance, due to varying levels of crystallinity, does not affect final properties. This will result in differences in pellet opacity. Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard.

This variation in the cooling of the pellets can result in different levels of crystallinity in the pellets only. The measurement is made on pellets and based on tristimulus values obtained with a spectrophotometer or colorimeter. Some materials, such as polyamide nyloncan be cooled very differently during the production of the pellets.

If there are no material specifications, then default conditions apply. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. The pellet shape is independent of the crystallinity of the material.

The test method shall be used only to compare specimens of similar pellet shape, size, texture, and degree of translucency. Color measurements can be useful for comparing resins in pellet form when astj samples are similar in shape and size.


For example, compare translucent disc-shaped pellets to translucent disc-shaped pellets, not with opaque, rectangular shaped pellets.

It is possible that each material will have unique characteristics that d66290 the color values. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard.

Any test specimen preparation, conditioning, dimensions, or testing parameters, or a combination thereof, covered in the materials specification shall take precedence over d2690 mentioned in this test method.
