Determination of Volatile Material and Ash Content in Polymeric Sulfur by Thermogravimetric Analysis
The volatile matter and ash content in polymeric sulfur are two important parameters for the characterization and process control of this material. These parameters are traditionally determined by two different standard test methods that require a long time and large amounts of sample. In the present work, a test method based on a single thermogravimetric analysis for the simultaneous determination of volatile material and ash content in a sulfur specimen is proposed as an alternative to the standard methods.
