Appendix A Designation: E 708-79 Standard Specification for Waste Glass As a Raw Material for the Manufacture of Glass Containers1
This standard is issued under the fixed designation E 708: the number immediately following the designation indicates the year of original adoption or, in the case of revision, the year of last revision. A number in parentheses indicates the year of last reapproval.
1. Scope
1.1 This specification covers particulate glass (cullet material, recovered from waste destined for disposal, smaller than 6 mm intended for reuse as a raw material in the manufacture of glass containers.
2. Applicable Documents
2.1 ASTM Standards.
C 162 Definitions of Terms Relating to Glass and Glass Products2
C 169 Chemical Analysis of Soda-Lime and Borosilicate Glass2
C 429 Sieve Analysis of Raw Materials for Glass Manufacture2
E 688 Testing Waste Glass as a Raw Material for Manufacture of Glass Containers3
3. Definitions
3.1 first glass cullet -- a particulate glass material that contains no more than 0.1 weight % Fe2O3 or 0.0015 weight % Cr2O3, as determined by chemical analysis.
3.2 For definitions of other terms used in this specification, refer to Definitions C 162.
4. Representative Sample
4.1 The following requirements qualify the glass lot to be used for direct use in soda-lime glass container manufacturing. Sample should be prepared and examined in accordance with Methods E 688.
NOTE 1--A preponderant proportion of glass cullet will be soda-lime bottle glass, the glass cullet having a composition as follows, as determined by Method C 169.
Composition, Weight %
66 to 75
1 to 7
CaO + MgO
9 to 13
12 to 16
NOTE 2--All percents referred to in this specification are weight percents.
5. General Requirements.
5.1 The sample shall show no drainage of liquid and be noncaking and free flowing. A moisture content of less than 0.5 weight % is required to meet the free-flowing characteristics of a cullet that is predominantly of smaller particle size, 1.18-mm (No. 16) sieve or smaller.
5.2 Screen Size -- No material shall be retained on a 6-mm ( ¼ -in.) screen. Material not exceeding 15 weight % shall pass through a 106-μm (No. 140) screen.
5.3 Organic Materials-- The total content of organic materials, as measured in accordance with Section 6 shall not exceed 0.2 weight % of dry sample, except for color-mixed glass where the content of organic material may exceed 0.2 weight %. However, a content of organic material greater than 0.2 weight % must be held within a tolerance of ±0.05 weight %, with a maximum organic limit of 0.4 weight %.
5.4 Magnetic Materials--The total magnetic materials shall not exceed 0.05 weight % of dry sample weight for flint glass and 0.14 weight % for colored glass of dry sample weight in accordance with Section 6.

5.5 Permissible Color Mix for Color Sorted Glass Cullet by Weight:
5.5.1 Amber Glass Cullet:
90 to 100
% amber
0 to 10
% flint
0 to 10
% green
0 to 5
% other colors
5.5.2 Green Glass Cullet:
50 to 100
% green
0 to 35
% amber
0 to 15
% flint
0 to 4
% other colors
5.5.3 Flint Glass Cullet:
95 to 100
% flint
0 to 5
% amber
0 to 1
% green
0 to 0.5
% other colors Percents above 0.1 weight % of Fe2O3 or 0.0015 weight % of Cr7O3, or both, as determined by chemical analysis shall be considered mixed color glass. These limits are consistent with industry experience on raw material. Flint glass cullet may contain up to 1 weight % emerald green or 10 weight % Georgia green, or a combination within the limits: 1 % Georgia green = 0.1 % emerald green.
5.6 Other Inorganic Material (such as non-magnetic metals or refractories)--As measured, material larger than 850-μm (No. 20) screen size shall not exceed 0.1 % of the dry sample weight. Material smaller than 850-μm screen size shall not exceed 0.5 % of the dry sample weight.
5.6.1 Refractories--Based upon U.S. series screen size and sample weight, the following refractory particle limits shall apply for each screen fraction as stated below.
+20 mesh
1 particle per 18-kg (40-lb) sample
-20, +40 mesh
2 particles per 450-g (1-lb) sample
-40, +60 mesh
20 refractory particles per 450-g (1-lb) sample
5.6.2 Nonmagnetic Metals:
+20 mesh
1 particle per 18-kg (40-lb) sample
Upon failure to meet the previously stated specification limits, retesting is permissible.
6. Sampling and Testing
6.1 Sampling and testing shall be in accordance with Methods E 688.
