Your Alert Profile lists the documents that will be monitored. Asym is generally the other components, such as plasticizers, cellulosics, lubricants, stabilizers, and colorants, that are responsible for fungus attack on plastic materials. If the sample appears to be absent of growth magnifications upwards of 50x, it should be used asfm verify that no growth exists.

It can also show, for long test durations, the effects fungus may have on the test specimen, such as changes in appearance, or in mechanical and electrical properties. Please first log in with a verified email before subscribing to alerts.
Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. Pronounced physical changes are observed on products in film form or as coatings, where the ratio of surface to volume is high, and where nutrient materials such as plasticizers and lubricants continue to diffuse to the surface as they are utilized by the organisms.
Please first verify your email before subscribing to alerts. NTS engineers are extremely careful handling samples for fungus testing, as the cleanliness of the specimens is aetm prior to testing — especially testing astj conducted on a cleaning or decontamination process.

To assess materials other than plastics, use of this test method should be agreed upon by all parties involved. Other effects include preferential growth caused by nonuniform dispersion of plasticizers, lubricants, and other processing additives.
The Fungus Resistance test is used to determine the resistance of key materials to fungi, and to determine if these materials are adversely affected by fungi under conditions favorable for their development… namely, high humidity, warm atmosphere, and presence the of inorganic salts. Changes in optical, mechanical, and electrical properties may be determined by the applicable ASTM methods. t21-09

There could be fungal spores on the gg21-09 that are not readily visible to the eye due to the size of the spores, localized areas of growth, or because the color of the spores are similar to those of the test specimen. To ensure that estimates of behavior are not too optimistic, the greatest observed degree of deterioration should be reported.

Changes in optical, mechanical, and electrical properties may be determined by the applicable ASTM methods. Link to Active This link will always route to the h21-09 Active version of the standard. Contamination can have a negative effect on the test results since it could easily provide nutrients to the fungus for growth.

The test can reveal if the specimen being analyzed supplies sufficient nutrition for xstm growth. The fungus results are usually determined and recorded as a growth rating: To varying degrees, live fungi will use wood, paper, leather, hydrocarbons, PVC, polyurethanes, certain plastics and paints, along with other materials, as fuel for growth.
This standard is also available to be included in Standards Subscriptions. If the samples are mishandled or suspected of contamination prior to testing, they should be cleaned, Testing cannot be conducted on specimens until 72 hours have passed.
