Take an appropriate amount of this product, cut into pieces, take 1.0g, place it in a crucible that has been ignited to a constant weight, accurately weigh it, and slowly ignite it on an electric furnace.

To be completely carbonized (should prevent the sample from catching fire), let it cool: Burn at 800℃ ±25℃to completely ash, place it in a desiccator, let it cool, and then accurately weigh it at 800℃ ±25℃ Burn to constant weight and get it.

Presentation of results

The percentage of ash content X is calculated by the following formula:

x (%)=( m2-m1)/m0*100%

 X is the percentage of ash, %

m0 is the weight of the test product, g;

m 1 is the weight of the empty crucible , g:

m2 is the weight of crucible and ash, g.
