ASTM D6358 - 11 Standard Classification System and Basis for Specification for Poly (Phenylene Sulfide) (PPS) Injection Molding and Extrusion Materials Using ISO Methods


Source: ASTM International

1. Scope

1.1 This classification system covers unfilled, reinforced and filled materials suitable for injection molding and extrusion using ISO methods. The system allows for the use of poly (phenylene sulfide) (PPS) plastic materials that are recycled, reconstituted recycled-regrind, recovered or reprocessed, or both, provided that the requirements as stated in this specification are met. It is the responsibility of the supplier and the buyer of recycled, reconstituted, recycled-regrind, recovered or reprocessed, or both, poly (phenylene sulfide) plastic materials to ensure compliance (see Guide D7209).

1.2 The properties included in this classification are those required to identify the compositions covered. It is possible that other requirements are necessary to identify particular characteristics important to specialized applications. The use of suffixes as shown in Section 5 is one way of specifying these requirements.

1.3 This classification system and subsequent line callout (specification) are intended to provide a means of calling out plastic materials used in the fabrication of end items or parts. It is not intended for the selection of materials. Material selection needs to be made by those having expertise in the plastic field after careful consideration of the design and the performance required of the part, the environment to which it will be exposed, the fabrication process to be employed, the costs involved, and the inherent properties of the material other than those covered by this classification.

1.4 The following precautionary caveat pertains only to the test method portion, Section 11, of this classification system: This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

Note 1—This standard and ISO 28078 address the same subject matter, but differ in technical content.

Note 2—ASTM D4067 for PPS uses ASTM test methods.
