Plastics - Recycled plastics - Sample preparation

This Technical Specification specifies the preparation of samples of recycled plastics prior to testing and takes account of the specifics of the material.
Sample preparation should avoid any process that causes 'de-mixing' of the sample. Following preparation, the sample should remain representative.
The behaviour of contaminants should be carefully analysed and observed to ensure this is homogeneous.
This Technical Specification does not address any legal or product safety issues.

Kunststoffe - Kunststoff-Rezyklate - Probenvorbereitung

Die vorliegende Technische Spezifikation legt die Probenvorbereitung von Kunststoff-Rezyklaten unter Berücksichtigung der Besonderheiten des Materials fest.
Während der Probenvorbereitung sollten alle Abläufe vermieden werden, die eine Entmischung der Probe verursachen. Nach der Probenvorbereitung sollte die Probe repräsentativ bleiben.
Das Verhalten von Kontaminanten sollte gründlich untersucht und beobachtet werden, um sicherzustellen, dass es homogen ist.
Diese Technische Spezifikation geht auf keine rechtlichen Fragen und Fragen der Produktsicherheit ein.

Plastiques - Plastiques recyclés - Préparation des échantillons

La présente Spécification Technique spécifie la préparation des échantillons de plastiques recyclés avant les
essais et tient compte des spécificités des matériaux.
Il convient que la préparation des échantillons évite toute opération entraînant une ségrégation de
l'échantillon. Après la préparation, il convient que l'échantillon reste représentatif.
Il convient que le comportement des contaminants soit analysé avec attention et observé afin de vérifier son
La présente Spécification Technique ne couvre aucun aspect légal ni problème de sécurité lié aux produits.

Polimerni materiali - Reciklirani polimerni materiali - Priprava vzorcev

Ta tehnična specifikacija določa pripravo vzorcev recikliranih polimernih materialov pred preskušanjem in upošteva posebne lastnosti materiala. Pri pripravi vzorcev se je potrebno izogniti kateremu koli postopku, ki povzroča separacijo sestave vzorca. Po pripravi mora vzorec ostati reprezentativen. Za zagotovitev homogenosti je treba vedenje kontaminantov podrobno analizirati in upoštevati. Ta tehnična specifikacija ne zajema pravnih težav ali težav z varnostjo proizvoda.

This Technical Specification (CEN/TS) was approved by CEN on 22 October 2012 for provisional application.

The period of validity of this CEN/TS is limited initially to three years. After two years the members of CEN will be requested to submit their
comments, particularly on the question whether the CEN/TS can be converted into a European Standard.

CEN members are required to announce the existence of this CEN/TS in the same way as for an EN and to make the CEN/TS available
promptly at national level in an appropriate form. It is permissible to keep conflicting national standards in force (in parallel to the CEN/TS)
until the final decision about the possible conversion of the CEN/TS into an EN is reached.

CEN members are the national standards bodies of Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia,
Finland, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania,
Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey and United
