Testing of welded joints between panels and pipes made of thermoplastics - Low-temperature tensile test
|Publication Date:||1 August 2010|
|ICS Code (Welded joints and welds):||25.160.40|
Scope of application
In order to assess the welding execution, reference can be made to the low-temperature tensile test in conjunction with other tests. In particular, this applies to materials with which the tensile test at the room temperature does not allow any differentiation.
The low-temperature short-time tensile welding factor fzT and the fracture pattern give an indication of the ductility of the joint and thus of the quality of the execution. The results are not transferable to the creep behaviour of the welded structure subjected to tensile stresses.
