Standard Test Method for Color Determination of Plastic Pellets

The values given in parentheses are for information only. This will result in differences in pellet opacity. More crystalline nylons will be more opaque than amorphous nylons.

Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. This variation in pellet appearance, due to varying levels of crystallinity, does not affect final properties. If there are no material specifications, then default conditions ashm.

This variation in the cooling of the pellets can d2690 in different levels of crystallinity in the pellets only. Some materials, such as polyamide nyloncan be cooled very differently during the production of the pellets. For example, compare translucent disc-shaped pellets to translucent disc-shaped pellets, not with opaque, rectangular shaped pellets.

Color Analysis ASTM D E E

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. Color measurements can be useful for comparing resins in pellet form when all samples are similar in shape and size.

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.

The test method shall be used only to compare specimens of similar pellet shape, size, texture, and degree of translucency.

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

The measurement is made on pellets and based on tristimulus values obtained with d62290 spectrophotometer or colorimeter. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard.


Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard. The pellet shape is independent of the crystallinity of the material.

This test method should not be used for general material specifications. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. It is astk that each material will have unique characteristics that determine the color values.
