a| ASTM D618-05 : b| Standard practice for conditioning plastics for testing.
a| West Conshohocken (Pa.) : c| 2005.
a| Conditioning of specimens may be undertaken: (1) for the purpose of bringing the material into equilibrium with normal or average room conditions, (2) simply to obtain reproducible results, regardless of previous history of exposure, or (3) to subject the material to abnormal conditions of temperature or humidity in order to predict its service behavior. The conditioning procedures prescribed in this practice are designed to obtain reproducible results and may give physical values somewhat higher or somewhat lower than values under equilibrium at normal conditions, depending upon the particular material and test. To ensure substantial equilibrium under normal conditions of humidity and temperature, however, may require from 20 to 100 days or more depending upon thickness and type of material and its previous history. Consequently, conditioning for reproducibility must of necessity be used for general purchase specifications and product control tests.
