This European Standard is also incorporated into BS 2782 Methods of testing  plastics : Part 11  Thermoplastics pipes, fitting and valves, as Method 1103E : 1997, for association with related test methods for plastics materials and plastics piping systems. It is also for use for the revision or amendment of other national standards as  practicable, but it should not be presumed to apply to any existing standard or  specification which contains or makes reference to a different test method until that standard/specification has been amended or revised to make reference to this method and any requirements adjusted as appropriate. NOTE : Subclause  4.1  states that test pieces may be cut from a cross-section of a pipe or fitting. For a  test method for determining the content of volatile material, it is essential that the cutting technique does not heat the test piece to an extent that would expel any material and thereby affect the results. In the absence of any related instructions by a referring standard, the responsible BSI committee considers that the cutting method should not induce any tangible heating or involve any coolant which could be adsorbed.  Warning note. This British Standard, which is identical with EN 12099 : 1997, does not necessarily detail all the precautions necessary to meet the requirements of the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974. Attention should be paid to any appropriate safety precautions and the method should be operated only by trained personnel. Compliance with a British Standard does not of itself confer immunity  from legal obligations.

This method is applicable to moulding and extrusion materials. It can also be applicable to components in PE piping systems. 2 Principle The method consists of determining the loss of mass of  a test piece which has been put in a drying oven at a  given temperature.    I    S    B    )   c    (  ,   y   p   o    C    d   e    l    l   o   r    t   n   o   c   n    U  ,    3    0    0    2   e   n   u    J    5    2  ,    h   g   u   o   r   o    b    h   g   u   o    L    f   o   y    t    i   s   r   e   v    i   n    U  ,   r   z   v   c   o    b    l   r   z   v   c   o    b    l   :   y   p   o    C    d   e   s   n   e   c    i    L NOTE. It is assumed that the following test parameters are set by the standard making reference to this standard: a) the source and form of the test piece (see 4.1); b) number of test pieces (see  4.2). 3 Apparatus 3.1 Drying oven or equivalent device, capable of  maintaining the temperature at (105 ±  2) ÊC at the  position for the cup(s) (see 3.2  and 5.4). 3.2 A cylindrical glass weighing cup, with a diameter  of 35 mm capable of containing a test piece (see  4.1), a  minimum volume of 50 ml and a corresponding lid. 3.3   A desiccator . 3.4 An analytical balance or equivalent, capable of  weighing to the nearest 0,1 mg. 5.3 Fill the cup with about 25 g portion of the sample and determine the mass,  m1  of the cup, lid and the test  portion to the nearest 0,1 mg. 5.4 Put the weighing cup in the drying oven zone which is kept at (105 ±  2) ÊC (see  3.1). 5.5 After a period of (65 ± 5) min, take the weighing cup out of the drying oven and put the cup in the desiccator for at least 1 h at room temperature. 5.6 Cover the cup with the lid. Weigh the cup, lid and residual material to the nearest 0,1 mg, as mass m2. 6 Calculation Calculate the volatile material content,  m v , of the test  portion using the following equation:  m v  =  m1  m1 2  m2 2  m0 3 106 where:  m v  is the volatile material content in milligrams  per kilogram (mg/kg) at (105 ±  2) ÊC;  m0 is the mass in grams of the empty weighing cup and its lid;  m1 is the mass in grams of the weighing cup and its lid plus the test portion;  m2 is the mass in grams of the weighing cup and its lid plus the residual material after 1 h at (105  ±  2) ÊC. 4 Test piece 7 Test report 4.1 Each test piece shall comprise an approximately 25 g portion of a sample representative of the material before moulding or extrusion, as applicable, or cut in accordance with the referring standard from a cross section of a pipe or fitting. The test report shall include the following information: a) the reference to this standard and to the referring standard; b) the complete identification of the test piece; c) the source and form of the material; d) the test temperature; e) the number of test portions tested; f) the calculated volatile material content, in milligrams per kilogram (mg/kg) for each test  portion; g) any factors which may have affected the results, such as any incidents or any operating details not specified in this standard; h) the date of the test. NOTE. If test samples utilize different sampling weights or are taken from different sources, e.g. raw material granulate or  finished product, then there may be a difference in test results obtained. This may depend on e.g. the surface area/mass ratio or  the maximum thickness of material. To demonstrate correlation with results for granulate samples determined in accordance with this standard, the preparation of samples from finished product may have to be modified. 4.2 The number of test pieces shall be as specified in the referring standard. 5 Procedure 5.1 Clean and dry a weighing cup and its lid (3.2) until constant weight is achieved and store them in the desiccator (3.3) for at least 0,5 h at room temperature. 5.2 Take the weighing cup and its lid out of the desiccator and determine their combined mass,  m 0, to the nearest 0,1 mg. Replace the lid in the desiccator. ©  BSI 1997    I    S    B    )   c    (  ,   y   p   o    C    d   e    l    l   o   r    t   n   o   c   n    U  ,    3    0    0    2   e   n   u    J    5    2  ,    h   g   u   o   r   o    b    h   g   u   o    L    f   o   y    t    i   s   r   e   v    i   n    U  ,   r   z   v   c   o    b    l   r   z   v   c BSI   o    b    l 389 Chiswick High Road   : London   y   pW4 4AL   o    C    d   e   s   n   e   c    i    L | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | BSI Ð British Standards Institution BSI is the independent national body responsible for preparing British Standards.
