  • ASTM D6845 - 12 Standard Test Method for Silica, Precipitated, Hydrated—CTAB (Cetyltrimethylammonium Bromide) Surface Area

    The CTAB molecule is relatively large; so it is not adsorbed in micropores or on surface roughness. Thus, the CTAB surface area reflects only the surface of the silica that is available for interaction with rubber molecules. 1. Scope 1.1 This test method covers the measurement of the specific surface area of precipitated silicas exclusive of ...

  • ASTM D7755 - 11 standard practice for determining the wear volume on standard test pieces used by high-frequency, linear-oscillation (SRV) test machine

    The determination of the wear volume becomes in tribological testing a key element, as it is more discriminative than the wear scar diameter, because an optically visible wear scar diameter may or may not indicate wear on the surface of the ball and the wear track as an irreversible loss of material. Users of this test method should determine whether ...
