ASTM C373

Standard Test Method for Water Absorption, Bulk Density, Apparent Porosity, and Apparent Specific Gravity of Fired Whiteware Products

The water absorption, bulk density, apparent porosity, and apparent specific gravity are determined by the boiling method. Testing of five unglazed specimens (of at least 50 gm/piece) is suggested by ASTM.

$225 per test of 5 specimens
