Standard Test Methods for Properties of Continuous Filament Carbon and Graphite Fiber Tows
|Publication Date:||1 November 2011|
These test methods cover the preparation and tensile testing of resin-impregnated and consolidated test specimens made from continuous filament carbon and graphite yarns, rovings, and tows to determine their tensile properties.
These test methods also cover the determination of the density and mass per unit length of the yarn, roving, or tow to provide supplementary data for tensile property calculation.
These test methods include a procedure for sizing removal to provide the preferred desized fiber samples for density measurement. This procedure may also be used to determine the weight percent sizing.
These test methods include a procedure for determining the weight percent moisture adsorption of carbon or graphite fiber.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
