Best Practices Guidelines for Material and Substance Characterization
This document provides implementation details for two sections of the HPD Open Standard:
- 126.96.36.199 Material Type: A broad classification of a material based on chemical makeup and molecular structure
- 188.8.131.52 Substance Role: A term that captures the substance’s purpose or function for inclusion in the material or product
- 184.108.40.206 Material Role: A term that captures the material’s purpose or function for inclusion in the product
In both cases, HPDC is providing a suggested list of terms that manufacturers are asked to choose from. The purpose of this is to support manufacturers in entering consistent, high-quality information on HPDs. This document provides that list of term, and additional instructions and information.
