Standard Test Method for High Speed Puncture Properties of Plastic Films Using Load and Displacement Sensors
|Publication Date:||1 August 2008|
|ICS Code (Films and sheets):||83.140.10|
This test method covers the determination of puncture properties of plastic films, over a range of test velocities.
Test Method D 1004 has defined film as having a thickness not greater than 0.25 mm (0.010 in.). Plastic materials having a thickness above this limit are not to be excluded from use unless shown to be rigid (see 3.2.1). Test Method D 3763 is the recommended method for instrumented puncture testing of rigid plastics.
Test data obtained by this test method is relevant and appropriate for use in engineering design.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard.
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.
NOTE 1-This test method does not closely conform to ISO 7765-2. The only similarity between the two tests is that they are both instrumented impact tests. The differences in striker, fixture, specimen geometries and in test velocity can produce significantly different test results.
