ASTM D792: Standard Test Methods for Density and Specific Gravity (Relative Density) of Plastics by Displacement  


This standard test method allows for measurement of the density and specific gravity of plastic materials by the buoyancy in a liquid, such as water. The principle of the test is easy to understand but the method offers a variety of sources for measurement errors, such as correction for the specimen fixation immersed, air bubbles, and others. Some scale manufacturers do offer specific fixtures as well as improved methods that do enhance the precision.
