ASTM-D5247 › Standard Test Method for Determining the Aerobic Biodegradability of Degradable Plastics by Specific Microorganisms (Withdrawn 2004)
Show Complete Document History
The following bibliographic material is provided to assist you with your purchasing decision:
1.1 This test method describes the procedures required to carry out a pure-culture study for evaluating the biodegradation of degradable plastics in submerged culture under aerobic conditions. Degradation will be evaluated by weight loss, tensile strength loss, percent-elongation loss and changes in molecular-weight distribution.
1.2 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, if any, associated with its use. 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.
Aerobic/anaerobic biodegradation; Bacterial biodegradation; Biodegradation; Degradable plastics; Fungal biodegradation; Molecular weight-distribution; Percent elongation; Pure culture; aerobic biodegradability-degradable plastics, by specific microorganisms; in submerged culture, test; ICS Number Code 07.100.99 (Other standards related to microbiology); 83.080.01 (Plastics in general)
