Moisture Analysis


Test ID  
D-018

   
Description  
Moisture content is determined by coulometric Karl Fischer titration. Karl Fischer titration utilizes the quantitive reaction of iodine with water for the moisture determination; the iodine is generated directly by high-precision electro-chemical means.    
Standards  
ASTM D6869  
ISO 15512  
Data  
This data appears in Matereality as Moisture Content.  
Replicates (# of times this test is repeated)  
2  
Samples  
1 - specimens, any type [details]

   

Application
 
Moisture content can have a marked effect on certain properties - for example, strength and viscosity - and for this reason, moisture analysis is often performed before proceeding with additional testing. Moisture content may also be required for automotive material qualification.
