1.1 This test method covers a Soxhlet extraction procedure to determine the matrix content, reinforcement content, and filler content of composite material prepreg. Volatiles content, if appropriate, and required, is determined by means of Test Method D3530.

1.1.1 The reinforcement and filler must be substantially insoluble in the selected extraction reagent and any filler must be capable of being separated from the reinforcement by filtering the extraction residue.

1.1.2 Reinforcement and filler content test results are total reinforcement content and total filler content; hybrid material systems with more than one type of either reinforcement or filler cannot be distinguished.

1.2 This test method focuses on thermosetting matrix material systems for which the matrix may be extracted by an organic solvent. However, other, unspecified, reagents may be used with this test method to extract other matrix material types for the same purposes.

1.3 Alternate techniques for determining matrix and reinforcement content include Test Methods D3171 (matrix digestion), D2584 (matrix burn-off/ignition), and D3529 (matrix dissolution and ignition loss). Test Method D2584 is preferred for reinforcement materials, such as glass, quartz, or silica, that are unaffected by high-temperature environments.

1.4 The technical content of this standard has been stable since 1997 without significant objection from its stakeholders. As there is limited technical support for the maintenance of this standard, changes since that date have been limited to items required to retain consistency with other ASTM D30 Committee standards. The standard therefore should not be considered to include any significant changes in approach and practice since 1997. Future maintenance of the standard will only be in response to specific requests and performed only as technical support allows.

1.5 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

1.6  This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Specific precautionary statements are given in Section 9 and 7.2.3 and 8.2.1.

1.7  This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
