Color Analysis ASTM D E E

The measurement is made on pellets and based on tristimulus values obtained with a spectrophotometer or colorimeter. It is possible that each material will have unique characteristics that determine the color values.

Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. More crystalline nylons will be more opaque than amorphous nylons. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard.


Some materials, such as polyamide nyloncan be cooled very d62990 during the production of the pellets. The pellet shape is independent of the crystallinity of the material.

This variation r6290 the cooling of the pellets can result in different levels of crystallinity in the pellets only. This will result in differences in pellet opacity.

The test method shall be used only to compare specimens of similar pellet shape, size, texture, and degree of translucency. D620 Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.

The values given in parentheses are for information only. This test method should not be used for general axtm specifications. This variation in pellet appearance, due to varying levels of crystallinity, does not affect final properties.

ASTM D – 18 Standard Test Method for Color Determination of Plastic Pellets

Any test specimen preparation, conditioning, dimensions, or testing parameters, or a combination thereof, covered in the materials specification shall take precedence over those mentioned in this test method. Color measurements can be useful for comparing resins in pellet form when all samples are similar in shape and size.


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.

For example, compare translucent disc-shaped pellets to translucent disc-shaped pellets, not with opaque, rectangular shaped pellets. If there are no material specifications, then default conditions apply. Work Item s – proposed revisions of this asmt.
