Standard Test Method for Stress Crazing of Acrylic Plastics in Contact with Liquid or Semi-Liquid Compounds
|Publication Date:||1 May 2019|
|ICS Code (Thermosetting materials):||83.080.10|
1.1 This test method covers determination of the crazing effect that a liquid or semi-liquid test compound will have on transparent acrylic plastic material that is under bending stress.
1.2 Three types of acrylic material are covered. One, two, or all of the materials shall be used in the test, as specified by the procuring agency. When not specified otherwise, all three types of acrylic shall be used in the test.
1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
1.4 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.
1.5 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.

This test method covers the procedure for determining the crazing effect caused by a liquid or semi-liquid on transparent three types of acrylic plastic materials under bending stress. Cast acrylic materials from Types A and B should be annealed according to specifications while the stretched acrylic materials of Type C should not be annealed. All test specimens should be machined from polished acrylic plastic sheets and should have smooth machined surfaces.View Less
