Plastics - Plasticized poly(viny1 chloride) (PVC-P) moulding 2020 Document Number: NL ISO 2898 1 : 2020Sector: Rubber and plastic industriesTC: NL TC 61ICS: 83.080.201.1 This part of I S 0 2898 establishes a system of designation for plasticized thermoplastic material which may be used as the basis for specifications. 1.2 The types of PVC-P plastics are differentiated from each other by a classification system based on appropriate levels of the designatory properties a) Shore hardness b) density c) and on information about physical form, intended application and/or method of processing, important properties, additives and colorants. torsional-stiffness temperature at 300 MPa 1.3 This part of I S 0 2898 is applicable to all plasticized compositions of homopolymers and copolymers that contain at least 50 Yo (m/m) of vinyl chloride. It is also applicable to plasticized compositions containing chlorinated poly(viny1 chloride) and to plasticized compositions containing blends of one or more of the above-mentioned polymers, provided that the total amount of these polymers represents at least 50 % (m/m) of the polymer content of the composition. This part of I S 0 2898 applies to materials ready for normal use in the form of powder (dry blends), granules or pellets, unmodified or modified by colorants, additives, fillers, etc. This part of I S 0 2898 does not apply IO cellular plastics or to paste compositions (plastisols). 1.4 It is not intended to imply that materials having the same designation give necessarily the same performance. This part of I S 0 2898 does not provide engineering data, performance data or data on processing conditions which may be required to specify a material for a particular application and/or method of processing. If such additional properties are required, they shall be determined in accordance with the test methods specified in part 2 of this International Standard, if suitable. 1.5 In order to specify a thermoplastic material for a particular application or to ensure reproducible processing, additional requirements may be given in data block 5 (see clause 3, first paragraph).
