This part of ISO 3451 specifies methods for determination of the ash of polyamides, both filled and unfilled. The general procedures given in ISO 3451-1 are followed. For unfilled materials method A or method C of ISO 3451-1:1997 is used. For filled and glass-fibre reinforced materials method A of ISO 3451-1:1997 is used.
