Low out-gassing polyimide label materials for outer space; Kapton® labels.
This test method ASTM E595 covers a screening technique used to determine the volatile content (e.g. trapped solvent, water, or un-reacted, low boiling point substances) of materials, when exposed to a vacuum environment at 125°C. This environment has been used historically to simulate the vacuum environment of deep space. A total mass loss (TML) of < 1% and a total collected volatile condensable materials (CVCM) of < 0.1 % is used as the screening level.
