ASTM D – 09 Standard Test Method for Transparency of Plastic Sheeting

Transparency is defined as the light diffused in a small angle range within 2. There is astk known ISO equivalent to this standard. Results obtained by the use of this test method are greatly influenced by the design parameters of the instruments; for example, the resolution is largely determined by the angular width of the receptor aperture. Standards Subsctiption may be the perfect solution.

For additional information, see Terminology E and Practice E It is a fundamental property used for control the purity of the product and for optical parts design.

From the orientation of the molecules further conclusions regarding the material properties can be derived.

Since the refractive indexes nx and ny indirections x and y of the stressed polymer are different, the wavelengths of the two wave components tx and ty are also different, therefore the two waves will be out of phase when leaving. Already Subscribed to this document. Its measured by quantity of light deviates by more than 2.

Birefringence is referred to as stress birefringence and its contributions are: Although generally applicable to any translucent or transparent material, it is principally intended for use with nominally clear and colorless thin sheeting. You may delete a document from your Alert Profile at any time.


This standard is also available to be included in Standards Subscriptions. The difference in the two velocities shows up a birefringence. This standard is not included in any packages. There are two types of angle distribution.

As the voice of the U. Subscription pricing is determined by: To make this website work, we log user data and share it with processors. Stress optical sensitivity is define as the ability of some materials to exhibit double satm of light when placed under stress. The optical properties of a substance mainly depends on the Molecular structure, morphological characteristics type and amount of additives, processing conditions and post processing operations.

If the document is revised or amended, you will be notified by email. When a photo elastic material is strained and viewed under polarized light. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.

The specimen is placed in the specimen holder. With no sample in position the unit is qstm until a reading of relative to air is obtained. The variables of appearance include glossiness or matness, opacity or transparency, smoothness or roughness, and metallic reflection or diffusion surfaces of parts of its rays.

A relatively flat, colored specimen is placed in a specimen holder.
