Plastics - Fluoropolymer dispersions and moulding and extrusion materials - Part 2: Preparation of test specimens and determination of properties
|Publication Date:||1 February 2004|
|ICS Code (Thermoplastic materials):||83.080.20|
This part of ISO 12086 describes the preparation of test specimens and provides test methods to define characteristics of thermoplastic fluoropolymer resins. Results from the testing may be used as the basis for designation, material specifications or both. This part of ISO 12086 describes the conditions of test for determining both designatory and other properties of t he homopolymers and various copolymers of fluoromonomers, as dispersions or powders for moulding, extrusion and other uses. The test procedures included are appropriate for, but are not restricted to, the fluoropolymers listed in Clause 4 and for w hich designatory properties are specified in ISO 12086-1. The properties of semi-finished and finished products made from fluoropolymer resins depend on the material used, the shape of t he product, the physical and morphological state of the material resulting from the processing operations, and on the test conditions. Therefore, to obtain reproducible test results, the defined methods of preparation of test specimens and defined test conditions given in this part of ISO 12086 must be applied. Agreements between vendor and purchaser should preferably b e based on properties measured using the specimens and test conditions described in this part of ISO 12086.
