Standard Classification System and Basis for Specification for Poly (Phenylene Sulfide) (PPS) Injection Molding, Extrusion and Blow Molding Materials Using ISO Methods


1.1 This classification system covers unfilled, reinforced and filled materials suitable for injection molding and extrusion using ISO methods. The system allows for the use of poly(phenylene sulfide) (PPS) plastic materials that are recycled, reconstituted recycled-regrind, recovered or reprocessed, or both, provided that the requirements as stated in this specification are met. It is the responsibility of the supplier and the buyer of recycled, reconstituted, recycled-regrind, recovered or reprocessed, or both, poly(phenylene sulfide) plastic materials to ensure compliance (see Guide D 5033).

1.2 The properties included in this classification are those required to identify the compositions covered. There may be other requirements necessary to identify particular characteristics important to specialized applications that may be specified by using the suffixes as given in Section .

1.3 This classification system and subsequent line callout (specification) are intended to provide a means of calling out plastic materials used in the fabrication of end items or parts. It is not intended for the selection of materials. Material selection should be made by those having expertise in the plastic field after careful consideration of the design and the performance required of the part, the environment to which it will be exposed, the fabrication process to be employed, the costs involved, and the inherent properties of the material other than those covered by this classification.

The following precautionary caveat pertains only to the test method portion, Section , of this classification system: This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, 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.

Note 1

There is no equivalent ISO standard.

Note 2

The last prior ASTM standard is Specification D 4067, which uses ASTM test methods.
