Standard test dust
DMT mineral dust type 2 is produced in accordance with the IEC 62885 (2016) / IEC 60312 (2010) / DIN EN 60312 (2014) Chapter 188.8.131.52. The particle size range is between 90 µm - 200 µm. This mineral dust is used for dust absorption testing on carpets as described in Chapter 5, IEC 62885-2.
(Reference to ISO 679 / CEM 1 Description )
With a particle size range between 90 - 200 µm it is possible that partial demixing may occur during transport. It is therefore recommended to homogenize DMT Carpet Mineral Sand Type 2 before use, which can be achieved by mixing it with a laboratory tumble mixer.
The specified particle size distribution is shown in the following table:
|x (µm)||Q3(x) (%)|
Transport and Storage
Partial segregation may occur during transport and storage. It is therefore recommended to homogenize the DMT Mineral Dust Type 2 | 184.108.40.206 before use, which can be achieved by mixing with a laboratory tumbler mixer. Please store in a dry and airtight original container.
In order to achieve reproducible quality, the raw materials and production are strictly controlled. The following quality controls are carried out:
Monitoring the particle size distribution of raw materials
Monitoring the particle size distribution of the end product
