Testing of welded joints of thermoplastics semi-finished products - Part 2: Tensile test
|Publication Date:||1 February 2000|
|ICS Code (Welded joints and welds):||25.160.40|
Specifies the dimensions, the method of sampling, the preparation of the test specimens and the conditions for performing the tensile test in order to determine the short term tensile welding factor. A tensile test may be used in conjunction with other tests (e.g. bend, tensile, creep, macro..) to assess the performance of welded assemblies, made from thermoplastics materials. The test is applicable to co-axial or co-planar welded assemblies made from thermoplastics materials filled or unfilled, but not reinforced, irrespective of the welding process used.
