Standard Test Method for Color Determination of Plastic Pellets

Color measurements can be useful for comparing resins in pellet form when all samples are similar in shape and size. The pellet shape is independent of the crystallinity of the material.

The values given in parentheses are for information only. More crystalline nylons dd6290 be more opaque than amorphous nylons. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.


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

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

Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard. This will result in differences in pellet opacity.

Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. The measurement is made on pellets and based on tristimulus values obtained with a spectrophotometer or colorimeter.

For example, compare translucent disc-shaped pellets to translucent disc-shaped pellets, not with opaque, rectangular shaped pellets. It is possible that each material will have unique characteristics that determine the color values.

If there are no material specifications, then default conditions apply. The test method shall be used only to compare specimens of similar pellet shape, size, texture, and degree of translucency.

This test method should not be used for general material specifications. Some materials, such as polyamide nyloncan be cooled very differently during the production of the pellets. This variation in the cooling of the pellets can result in different levels of crystallinity in the pellets only.
