NASA Outgassing Adhesive

NASA developed a method to screen low outgassing material to be used in space. The test determines the volatile content of material samples placed in a heated vacuum chamber. ASTM E595 is the standard test method for measuring outgassing in adhesives and other polymer materials. Results are highly dependent on how the adhesive is cured. Results of the test vary based on cure. Once the sample is cured according to manufacturer suggested cure…
