Standard ASTM D4496-04E01
1.1 This test method covers the determination of the measurement of electrical resistance or conductance of materials that are generally categorized as moderately conductive and are neither good electrical insulators nor good conductors.
1.2 Test measurements of electrical resistance (or conductanc
e) and specimen geometry data are used to compute an electrical resistivity for the material.
1.3 This test method applies to all materials that exhibit volume resistivity in the range of 1 to 107 -cm or surface resistivity in the range of 103 to 107 (per squar
1.4 This test method is designed for measurements at standard conditions of 23C and 50 % relative humidity, but its principles of operation can be applied to specimens measured at lower or higher temperatures and relative humidities.
