Standard Test Method for Color Determination of Plastic Pellets

Work Item d66290 – proposed revisions of this standard. The measurement is made on pellets and based on tristimulus values obtained with a spectrophotometer or colorimeter.


Some materials, such as polyamide nylonv6290 be cooled very differently during the production of the pellets. If there are no material specifications, then default conditions apply. For example, compare translucent disc-shaped pellets to translucent disc-shaped pellets, not with opaque, rectangular shaped pellets.

This test method should not be used for general material specifications.

ASTM D – 05 Standard Test Method for Color Determination of Plastic Pellets

It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

This will sstm in differences in pellet opacity.

Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. This variation in the cooling of the pellets can result in different levels of crystallinity in the pellets only.

This variation in pellet appearance, due to varying levels of crystallinity, does not affect final properties.

More astmm nylons will be more opaque than amorphous nylons. Color measurements can be useful for comparing resins in pellet form when all samples are similar in shape and size. It is possible that each material will have unique characteristics that determine the color values.


Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. The pellet shape is independent of the crystallinity of the material. The test method shall be used only to compare specimens of similar pellet shape, size, texture, and degree of translucency.
