For example, compare translucent disc-shaped pellets to translucent disc-shaped pellets, not with opaque, rectangular shaped pellets. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.
If there are no material specifications, then default conditions apply. This variation in e6290 appearance, due to varying levels of crystallinity, does not affect final properties.
Standard Test Method for Color Determination of Plastic Pellets
This will result in differences in pellet opacity. It is possible that each material will have unique characteristics that determine the color values.
Some materials, such as polyamide nyloncan be cooled very differently during the production of the pellets. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard.
Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard. This test method should not be used for general material specifications.
More crystalline nylons will be more opaque than amorphous nylons. 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.
It is the responsibility of the user of this standard aatm establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

ASTM D – 05 Standard Test Method for Color Determination of Plastic Pellets
The test method shall be used only to compare specimens of similar astmm shape, size, texture, and degree of translucency.
This variation in the cooling of the pellets can d690 in different levels of crystallinity in the pellets only. Color measurements can be useful for comparing resins in pellet form when all samples are similar in shape and size. The measurement is made on pellets and based on tristimulus values obtained with a spectrophotometer or colorimeter.
The pellet shape is independent of the crystallinity of the material.
