Moisture content test


 With this test we determine the amount of moisture in the sample by drying it or by adding a reagent.

Can be applied to:

3D printed structures


Test procedure standards:

ASTM E1868-10

Test procedures:

1. Loss-on Drying

In this method we measure the total change in the weight of a material when the sample has dried. This gives us an indication of the moisture content of the sample before drying.

2. Karl Fischer Titration

This is a chemical method that measures only water content in a product sample. It involves adding a reagent to the sample to cause a reaction that converts the water in the product into a non-conductive chemical. This methodology allows for  measuring water content in which volatile impurities can impact the measurement done by heating the samples.

All tests – composites – metals – plastics – coatings – adhesives – 3D prints
