Standard Test Method for Tensile Properties of Thin Plastic Sheeting
|Publication Date:||10 August 2001|
1.1 This test method covers the determination of tensile properties of plastics in the form of thin sheeting, including film (less than 1.0 mm (0.04 in.) in thickness).
1.2 This test method may be used to test all plastics within the thickness range described and the capacity of the machine employed.
1.2.1 Static Weighing, Constant-Rate-of-Gri
1.3 Specimen extension may be measured in these test methods by grip separation, extension indicators, or displacement of gage marks.
1.4 A procedure for determining the tensile modulus of elasticity is included at one strain rate.
1.5 Test data obtained by this test method is relevant and appropriate for use in engineering design.
1.6 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values in parentheses are provided for information only.
1.7 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.
