Standard Practice for Tests to Evaluate the Chemical Resistance of Geotextiles to Liquids
|Publication Date:||1 June 2017|
|ICS Code (Geotextiles):||59.080.70|
This practice describes the procedures used for testing geotextiles for chemical resistance to liquids. Reinforcement geotextiles can also be tested per Practice D6213.
This practice describes test methods for measuring changes in planar dimensions, tensile properties, and other optional physical, mechanical, and hydraulic properties caused by immersion in test liquids which may be representative of anticipated end-use conditions. This practice may be used to assess the extent to which a product's as-manufactured properties are affected by such immersion.
This practice is intended to be used in conjunction with either Practice D5322 or D5496. The scope of this practice is limited to testing and reporting procedures for unexposed and exposed geotextile samples.
Evaluation or interpretation of test data is beyond the scope of this practice.
