ISO 7270-1-2020 pdf free download.Rubber – Analysis by pyrolytic gas- chromatographic methods – Part 1: Identification of polymers (single polymers and polymer blends).
This document specifies a method for the identification of polymers, or blends of polymers, in raw rubbers and in vulcanized or unvulcanized compounds from pyrograms (pyrolysis-gas chromatographic patterns) obtained under the same conditions. This allows qualitative identification of single rubbers or blends, with exceptions discussed below. This document is not intended for quantitative analysis.
The method applies first and foremost to single polymers. When the pyrogram indicates a characteristic hydrocarbon, the method is also applicable to blends. For details, see Clause_5. The method can be also applicable to other types of polymer when verified by the analyst in each particular case.
NOTE The use of this document pre-supposes sufficient working knowledge of the principles and techniques of gas chromatography to enable the analyst to carry out the operations described and to interpret the results correctly.

4 Principle
4.1 Raw or vulcanized rubbers and/or their blends are pyrolysed and the pyrolysis products are subjected to gas-chromatographic analysis under predefined conditions. The chromatograms produced are referred to as pyrograms.
4.2 Pyrograms are interpreted by comparison with reference pyrograms produced from the same rubbers and/or blends, prepared and analysed under the same conditions.
5 Single polymers and blends
5.1 General
The rubbers in the following listing are grouped in accordance with Iso 1629:2013.
5.2 GroupM
a) Chlorinated polyethylene (CM) and chiorosulfonated polyethylene (CSM).
NOTE 1 The pyrogram will not differentiate between these chlorinated polyethylenes.
b) Ethylene-propylene copolymers (EPMs) and ethylene-propylene-diene terpolymers (EPDMs).
NOTE 2 The pyrogram can differentiate terpolymers from copolymers when the pyrogram indicates characteristic dienW’ monomer pyrolysis products.
c) Acrylic rubbers (ACM5).
5.3 Group 0
Epichiorohydrin rubbers Ihomopolymer (CO), copolymer (ECO) and terpolymers].
NOTE The pyrogram will not differentiate between these various types of epichlorohydrin polymer.
