S6290 measurement is made on pellets and based on tristimulus values obtained with a spectrophotometer or colorimeter. The pellet shape is independent of the crystallinity of the material.

This will result in differences in pellet opacity. 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. More crystalline nylons will be more opaque than amorphous nylons.


Any test specimen preparation, conditioning, dimensions, or testing parameters, or a combination thereof, covered in the materials specification shall take precedence over those mentioned in this test method. Color measurements d62290 be useful for comparing resins in pellet form when all samples are similar in shape and size.

D620 test method should not be used for general material specifications. This variation in the cooling of the pellets can result in different levels of crystallinity in the pellets only.

Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. If there are no material specifications, then default conditions apply.

It is possible that each material will have unique characteristics that determine the color values. The test method shall be used only to compare specimens of similar pellet asstm, size, texture, and degree of translucency.


The values given in parentheses are for information only. For example, compare qstm disc-shaped pellets to translucent disc-shaped pellets, not with opaque, rectangular shaped pellets.

Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. This variation in pellet appearance, due to varying levels of crystallinity, does not affect final properties. Some materials, such as polyamide nyloncan be cooled very differently during the production of the pellets. d2690
