Thus, this test is able to detect and follow profound changes which occur during extrusion, injection molding, milling, or mixing.

ASTM D3364 – 99(2011)

If you feel that your comments have not received a fair hearing you should make your views known to the ASTM Astj on Standards, at the address shown below. Subscribe to Instron News! This test method is useful for quality-control tests on PVC compounds having a wide range of melt viscosities.

The dimensions of the regular die are shown in Fig. Your comments are invited either for revision of this standard or adtm additional standards and should be addressed to ASTM International Headquarters. The quantity of material introduced into the barrel is 2. Correlations with a wide range of processing conditions have supported the conclusions that little or no change in composition occurs during the test.

Make the cut quickly and neatly for best precision. Note 1—There is no known ISO equivalent to this standard.

ASTM D3364 Flow Rates for Poly Vinyl Chloride

This test is able to detect and follow profound changes, which occur during extrusion, injection molding, milling, or mixing, that are due to three types of measured instability in polymers, including Thermal instability due to temperature effect, Shear instability due to breaking of polymer bonds, and D3346 instability due to non-uniform distributions of widely different viscosity or molecular weight elements. The sensitivity of this test method makes it useful for correlating with processing conditions and as an aid in predicting changes in processing.


The data in Table 3 should not be rigorously applied to acceptance or rejection of material, as those data are speci? We use cookies to improve your browsing experience. This statement further de? The principles of Pass the tip of the spatula upward along one side of the beveled hole, lightly across the bottom of the ori? Originally published as D — ASTM International takes no position respecting the validity of any patent rights asserted in connection with any item mentioned in this standard.

Email addresses can only contain letters, numbers and the following special characters: However, as a one-point measure of flow relative to shear rate, its one drawback is that the same PVC melt flow values can be obtained for materials having different wstm the chance of this happening is minimized, however, if the compounds are similar in composition.

D33364 are made at shear rates close to 1 s? The following explanations of r and R At least twice a day check the ori? Check this box to receive pertinent commercial email from Instron focusing on products, upcoming events, and more!

If the difference between the two specimens is greater than 0. Description Contact Us This test method is used for quality-control tests on PVC compounds that have a wide range of melt viscosities.

NOTE 3—Occasionally, the values change throughout the run. The instrument is now ready for the next test.


Current research for multiweight testing has reached levels of 50 kg and these are particularly good for rigid PVC.

The value for the instability will then be positive or negative. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. As a guide, each specimen should be about 20 to 30 mm long. It may be necessary to reshape the end of the cutoff tool to obtain the best results. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.

Report as percent PVC instability. If instability still occurs, particularly at high?

Many PVC compounds are elastic in nature, causing a severe loss in pressure from the bottom of the piston through the material to the ori? Thus, x3364 with respect to PVC molecular structural changes can be detected and predicted. If charging time is greater than 1 min, clean out the instrument and repeat the procedure.
