Test Method Title
Standard Test Methods for Density and Specific Gravity (Relative Density) of Plastics by Displacement
Specific Gravity, Density & Relative Density
Description of Test
Determine the mass of a specimen of the solid plastic in air. It is then immersed in a liquid, its apparent mass upon immersion is determined, and its specific gravity (relative density) calculated.
Preferred Test Sample Size
3' x roll width
Number of Test Specimens
Test Specimen Size
4" x 4"
