ASTM D4067

ASTM D4067 Call Outs

The ASTM D4067 Standard is a material call out system especially for polyphenylene sulfide (PPS) injection molding and extrusion materials. These material call outs are codes that may be used on part drawings or in other specifications to specify the use of PPS compounds having certain characteristics, without referring to any particular manufacturers or products. The ASTM D4067 material call outs listed here for our Ryton® PPS compounds represent the minimum performance characteristics of each particular product. An explanation of the meaning of these material call outs and how to determine whether a particular Ryton® PPS compound satisfies the call out given on a drawing (or other specification) is given below.

The first six or seven characters of the material call out, "PPS000" or "PPS0000," specify that the molding or extrusion compound must be PPS-based. The next character specifies the types of fillers and/or reinforcements used in the compound, and the following two characters specify the weight percent of reinforcements and/or fillers used in the compound. The next six characters in the material call out specify certain minimum physical property characteristics of the compound. The significance of each character and the requirements for a Ryton® PPS compound to satisfy a call out given on a drawing (or other specification) are explained below using the example callout "PPS0000G40A53343."


CharacterSignificanceRequirements
PPS0000The molding or extrusion compound must be PPS-based. This is the generic PPS family designation.Currently, the call outs for all PPS compounds start with "PPS0000," but older call outs may start with "PPS000."
GType of reinforcements and/or fillers:
"C" for carbon or graphite fiber
"G" for glass fiber
"L" for lubricants
"M" for mineral fillers
"R" for mixtures of fillers and reinforcements
The letter in the call out of the Ryton® PPS compound must match the letter in the call out on the drawing or specification.
40Nominal filler content in weight percent within the following tolerance ranges:
± 2 wt. % for carbon or graphite fiber "C"
± 2 wt. % for < 15% glass fiber "G"
± 3 wt. % for > 15% glass fiber "G"
± 2 wt. % for mineral fillers "M"
± 3 wt. % for mixtures of fillers "R"
(Tolerance ranges for lubricant content must be established by agreement between the supplier and the user.)
The filler content given in the call out of the Ryton® PPS compound must be within the specified tolerance range of the filler content given in the call out on the drawing or specification.
AReferences Physical Properties Requirements Table A in the ASTM D4067 Standard.All ASTM D4067 call outs should have the character "A" at the beginning of this extension.
5Minimum Tensile Strength requirement according to performance levels defined in Table A in the ASTM D4067 StandardThe number in the call out of the Ryton® PPS compound must be greater than or equal to the number given in the callout on the drawing or specification.
3Minimum Flexural Modulus requirement according to performance levels defined in Table A in the ASTM D4067 Standard.The number in the callout of the Ryton® PPS compound must be greater than or equal to the number given in the call out on the drawing or specification.
3Minimum Notched Izod Impact Strength requirement according to performance levels defined in Table A in the ASTM D4067 Standard.The number in the call out of the Ryton® PPS compound must be greater than or equal to the number given in the call out on the drawing or specification.
4Minimum Flexural Strength requirement according to performance levels defined in Table A in the ASTM D4067 Standard.The number in the call out of the Ryton® PPS compound must be greater than or equal to the number given in the call out on the drawing or specification.
3Minimum Density requirement according to performance levels defined in Table A in the ASTM D4067 Standard.The number in the call out of the Ryton® PPS compound must be greater than or equal to the number given in the call out on the drawing or specification.

So, for example, Ryton® R-4-230NA PPS would satisfy the callouts "PPS0000G40A53343" or "PPS0000G40A43233." But Ryton® R-4-230NA PPS would not satisfy the call outs "PPS0000G45A53343" (wrong filler content) or "PPS0000R60A43233" (wrong filler type and content) or "PPS0000G40A63463" (may have insufficient tensile strength or flexural strength). Ryton® R-4-200NA PPS or Ryton® R-4-200BL PPS would satisfy the callout "PPS0000G40A63463."

Occasionally, material call outs will have further extensions or other unique notations to indicate special property requirements. Please contact our Quality Assurance representatives or Technical Service staffs regarding selection of Ryton® PPS compounds to meet these additional performance requirements.

ASTM D6358 Call Outs

The ASTM D6358 Standard is a material call out system especially for polyphenylene sulfide (PPS) injection molding and extrusion materials. These material call outs are codes that may be used on part drawings or in other specifications to specify the use of PPS compounds having certain characteristics, without referring to any particular manufacturers or products. The ASTM D6358 material call outs listed here for our Ryton® PPS compounds represent the minimum performance characteristics of each particular product. An explanation of the meaning of these material call outs and how to determine whether a particular Ryton® PPS compound satisfies the call out given on a drawing (or other specification) is given below.

The first six characters of the material call out specify the PPS compound group and class, and will be followed by the grade designation as defined in ASTM D6358, or a "0" if properties are to be defined by the remainder of the call out. The next character specifies the types of fillers and/or reinforcements used in the PPS compound, and the following two characters specify the weight percent of reinforcements and/or fillers used in the PPS compound. The next six characters in the material call out (if present) specify certain minimum physical property characteristics of the PPS compound. The significance of each character and the requirements for a Ryton® PPS compound to satisfy a call out given on a drawing (or other specification) are explained below using the example call out "PPS0110G40A43353."

But Ryton® R-4-230NA PPS would not satisfy the call outs "PPS0110R60A33243" (wrong filler type and content) or "PPS0110G40A63463" (may have insufficient tensile strength or flexural strength). Ryton® R-4-200NA PPS or Ryton® R-4-200BL PPS would satisfy the call out "PPS0110G40A63463."

Occasionally, material call outs will have further extensions or other unique notations to indicate special property requirements.

Military

Military Specifications

Military specifications describe and organize the essential technical requirements for materials, services, subsystems and components needed for the Department of Defense (DOD). Though some military specifications parallel consensus standards and comparable federal specifications, many are uniquely military in character and demand high reliability. As a system of standards, military specifications comprise several levels of requirements organized very much like other major standards systems such as ASTM. They call out various test procedures, materials specifications, component requirements and, finally, the performance, certification, marking and other features of end-use products. Materials specifications define certain materials and classify them by the features and properties of available grades. At the next layer of standards, component specifications describe a particular part, subsystem or assembly which may be utilized in several end-use products. PPS compounds are widely used in components manufactured to meet the requirements of certain military specifications.

Many military component specifications now allow for the use of PPS materials as defined by either a military materials specification or a specific callout according to the ASTM D4067 standard classification system for PPS materials. For example, connectors manufactured to the requirements of MIL-DTL-55302F may use any PPS materials that will meet the requirements of MIL-M-24519 Type GST-40F or the callout requirements of ASTM D4067-90 PPS000G40A30330E01F01Y11. So even though there are no longer any Ryton® PPS products certified to MIL-M-24519 Type GST-40F, Ryton® PPS products which meet the requirements of the cited ASTM D4067 callout may still be used in connectors which must meet MIL-DTL-55302F requirements. Similar cases are found in other military component specifications. Listed below, are ASTM D4067 callouts for PPS materials that are cited in certain military component specifications, and the Ryton® PPS products that will meet the corresponding ASTM D4067 callout requirements.
