|Publication Date:||1 April 2008|
|ICS Code (Other rubber and plastics products):||83.140.99|
This specification covers extruded polytetrafluoroethyl
The specification covers all sizes of rod, tubing, and basic shapes with a wall thickness of 1.6 mm (1⁄16 in.) or greater. These materials must be made wholly from PTFE and produced in accordance with good commercial ram extrusion practices.
NOTE 1-This specification and ISO/DIS 13000-1 (1997) and ISO/DIS 13000-2 (1997) differ in approach, however, data obtained using either are technically equivalent.
NOTE 2-For compression molded PTFE materials, see Specification D 3294. Material that can be certified to Specification D 3294 may be substituted for Specification D 1710, however the reverse in not true.
The values stated in SI units, as detailed in IEEE/ASTM SI 10 are to be regarded as the standard. The inch-pound units given in parentheses are provided for information only.
The following precautionary caveat pertains to the test methods portion, Section 12, only of this specification: 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 and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
