ASTM C559 – Standard Test Method for Bulk Density by Physical Measurements of Manufactured Carbon and Graphite Articles
Significance and Use
4.1 Bulk density as determined by this test method is a basic material property of importance in manufacturing and application of carbon and graphite.
4.2 This test method can be used for quality and process control, material characterization and description, and other purposes.
1.1 This test method covers the determination of the bulk density of manufactured articles of carbon and graphite of at least 500 mm3 volume. The bulk density is calculated to an accuracy of 0.25 %, using measurements of mass and dimensions in air at 25 °C ± 5 °C.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
