Standard Test Method for Tensile Properties of Elastomeric Yarns (CRE Type Tensile Testing Machines)
|Publication Date:||1 January 2007|
|ICS Code (Yarns):||59.080.20|
This test method covers the determination of the tensile properties of "as produced" elastomeric yarns made from natural rubber, spandex or other elastomers, using a constantrate- of-extension (CRE) type tensile testing machine. The properties included in this test method are: (1) force at first filament break, (2) tenacity at first filament break, (3) elongation at first filament break, (4) work to break at first filament break, and (5) toughness at first filament break.
This test method does not apply to covered, wrapped, or core-spun yarns or yarns spun from elastomeric staple.
This test method is applicable to elastomeric yarns in the range from 40 to 3200 dtex (36 to 2900 denier).
The values stated in either SI units or U.S. Customary units are to be regarded separately as standard. Within the text, the U.S. Customary units are given in parentheses. The values stated in each system are not exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
