Random specimens shall be generated as described in Practice E If you feel f9003 your comments have not received a fair hearing you should make your views known to the ASTM Committee on Standards, at the address shown below.
If not, one of the following methods has usually been effective in enhancing droplet visibility by producing a characteristic discoloration. A transparent cover see Fig.
What are ASTM F Safety Standards? |
Clean any external parts of the test cell touched by the liquid. Use of a funnel is one way to make? This standard is subject to revision at any time asym the responsible technical committee and must be reviewed every?
The deleterious effects of these chemicals can range from acute trauma such as skin ashm and burn to chronic degenerative disease, such as cancer. However, it is also appropriate to establish sampling plans based on a specific acceptable quality limit using a larger number of specimens, depending on the application of the test method.
In this test method, all procedures involve liquid exposure that is continuous over the duration of the test.
What are ASTM F903 Safety Standards?
NOTE 2—Material is steel. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version sstm the standard. Users of this standard are expressly advised that determination of the validity of any such patent rights, and the risk of infringement of such rights, are entirely their own responsibility.
Also, remember just assuming that the workwear you have chosen will properly protect you is a risk that is not worth risking injury. Remove the specimen and gasket from the cell and discard.
The values in parentheses are for information only. NOTE 2—Material is transparent shatterproof-resistant plastic sheet. If the liquid passes through the specimen, the material fails the test for resistance to penetration of the liquid. B Procedure C is that speci?
A number in parentheses indicates the year of last reapproval. Passing results indicate that no liquid penetration was observed over the duration of the f9003 exposure.
Resistance to permeation and degradation should be determined by other test methods. If the temperature of the cell and liquid were different at the start of the test, report both. Your Flame-Resistant Clothing Refresh. Flush the test cell with an appropriate wash liquid to remove or render harmless any traces of the test chemical.
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. Used for other speci? It is recommended that any special means used to seal specimens in the test cell be validated for providing sufficient integrity of the specimen in the test cell, not contribute to specimen damage, and not interfere with the observation of liquid penetration.
Use Test Method F to provide a complete evaluation of the liquid integrity of protective clothing or ensembles, particularly areas of the clothing or ensembles that cannot be directly assessed by this test method, such as interface areas between different items of clothing and equipment.
The specimen fails if a droplet of liquid appears or a characteristic discoloration see 9. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and f9033 practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Your comments will aetm careful consideration at a meeting of the responsible technical committee, which you may attend.
A transparent cover is optional.
However, it is possible that differences in chemical and molecular properties for example, surface tension may lead to different results. Procedure C uses a Suggestions are provided for how to select an appropriate procedure for liquid contact. Special means used to seal specimens in the test cell should be documented in the report.
To make sure you stay safe while around corrosive chemicals, check that the garment you are wearing has been properly tested and meets the regulations and safety standards associated with the chemicals you are working with or the standards that your employer sets.
