Test Method for Determining Blocking Resistance and Associated Characteristics of Automotive Trim Materials

2012-10-15
CURRENT
J912_201210
This test method is designed to indicate the degree of surface tackiness, color transfer, loss of embossment, and surface marring when two trim materials are placed face to face under specific conditions of time, temperature, and pressure. These specific conditions are not dictated in this test procedure but will be found in the material standards which govern each type of trim material to be tested.

Procedure for Visual Evaluation of Interior and Exterior Automotive Trim

1985-03-01
HISTORICAL
J361_198503
This SAE Recommended Practice applies to parts and materials used in vehicle manufacture which are intended to be acceptable color matches to a specified standard. This document is intended for use with parts or materials which are opaque or nearly so. Materials covered by this document include topcoat paint finishes, interior soft trim, interior and exterior hard trim, and exterior film and flexible trim. Purpose The intent of this document is to precisely specify procedures for the visual evaluation of appearance of colored materials or parts incorporated in the manufacture of vehicles. The document provides a consistent engineering practice for the determination of visual color difference between materials or parts of the same or like materials. A suitable fixture providing daylight, fluorescent, and horizon lighting conditions is necessary for this evaluation.

Outdoor Weathering of Exterior Materials

1989-06-01
HISTORICAL
J1976_198906
This test method specifies the exposure rack(s), black box(es), and instrumentation, which shall be used for the outdoor weathering of materials for automotive exterior application. All dimensions are nominal unless otherwise noted. A list of approved exposure test sites is generally available from specified automotive manufacturers. Sample preparation, exposure duration, and performance evaluation procedures not presented in this method are covered in material specifications of the different automotive manufacturers.

Flammability of Polymeric Interior Materials - Horizontal Test Method

2019-08-08
CURRENT
J369_201908
This SAE Standard pertains to automotive vehicles and off-road, self-propelled work machines used in construction, general purpose industrial, agriculture, forestry, and specialized mining machinery. This standard does not address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this document to establish safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Fire testing is inherently hazardous. Adequate safeguards for personnel and property shall be employed when conducting this test.

WIP
J1756
1.1 This recommended practice describes two methods for determining the tendency of interior materials used in automobiles and other vehicles to (a) produce a light scattering deposit (fog) on a glass surface, or (b) produce a measurable deposit (mass) on aluminum foil. 1.2 This document is applicable to the measurement of a fog condensate on glass or aluminum foil surfaces within the limits of the test conditions. 1.3 It is the responsibility of the user of this document to establish appropriate safety and health practices and to determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to its use.

Accelerated Exposure of Automotive Exterior Materials Using a Fluorescent Uv and Condensation Apparatus

1995-05-01
HISTORICAL
J2020_199505
This test method specifies the operating conditions for a fluorescent ultraviolet (UV) and the condensation apparatus used for the accelerated exposure of various automotive exterior components. The sample preparation, test, duration, and performance evaluation procedures are addressed by each automotive manufacturer's material specifications. This SAE Standard may involve hazardous materials, operations, and equipment. This document does not purport to address all of the safety problems associated with its use. It is the responsibility of whoever uses this document to consult and establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. This test method is designed to simulate extreme environmental conditions encountered on the outside of an automobile due to sunlight, heat, and humidity and to provide an acceleration of exposure for the purpose of predicting the performance of exterior automotive materials.
