Relative Density

Introduction

The relative density of Optiblanc ULD was determined by a gas comparison pyknometer method. The procedure conformed to EC Directive 92/69/EEC Method A3, and OECD Guideline 109.

Method

The procedure was performed using a Micromeritics multivolume pyknometer model AccuPyc 1330TC. The apparatus was calibrated with a ball of known volume from five sets of pressure measurements of an inert gas (helium). The ball was placed in a measuring cup in the instrument and the test chamber was sealed and charged with helium. The gas was then allowed to expand into a further chamber of known volume and the volume of the test chamber was calculated from the pressure data using the gas laws. The density of the test substance was determined in a similar manner after the ball was replaced with test substance. The sample density was calculated from the weight and volume.
