Standard Test Method for Index Puncture Resistance of Geomembranes and Related Products
|Publication Date:||1 December 2007|
|ICS Code (Geotextiles):||59.080.70|
This test method is used to measure the index puncture resistance of geomembranes and related products.
The use of Test Method D4833/D4833M may be inappropriate for testing some woven geotextiles or related products which have large openings, such as geonets and geogrids.
It is recommended that geotextile and geotextile related products be tested using Test Method D6241.
The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system are not necessarily exact equivalents; therefore, to ensure conformance with the standard, each system shall be used independently of the other, and values from the two systems shall not be combined.
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.
