Plastics - Thermoplastic polyester/ester and polyether/ester elastomers for moulding and extrusion - Part 2: Preparation of test specimens and determination of properties
|Publication Date:||1 March 2013|
|ICS Code (Thermoplastic materials):||83.080.20|
This part of ISO 14910 specifies the methods of preparation of test specimens and the standard test methods to be used in determining the properties of thermoplastic polyester/ester and polyether/ester moulding and extrusion materials. Requirements for handling test material and/or for conditioning both the test material before moulding and the specimens before testing are given.
Procedures and conditions for the preparation of test specimens in a specified state and procedures for measuring properties of the materials from which these specimens are made are given. Properties and test methods which are suitable and necessary to characterize thermoplastic polyester/ester and polyether/ester moulding and extrusion materials are listed.
The properties have been selected from the general test methods in ISO 10350-1. Other test methods in wide use for or of particular significance to these moulding and extrusion materials are also included in this part of ISO 14910, as are the designatory properties specified in ISO 14910-1 (hardness, melting temperature and tensile modulus).
In order to obtain reproducible and comparable test results, it is necessary to use the methods of preparation and conditioning, the specimen dimensions and the test procedures specified in this part of ISO 14910. Values determined will not necessarily be identical to those obtained using specimens of different dimensions or prepared using different procedures.
NOTE This part of ISO 14910 has been developed on the basis of
ISO 10350-1 as, at the moment, no standard exists for the
acquisition and presentation of comparable single-point data for
thermoplastic elastomers. After publication of this part of ISO
14910 and the analogous document for polyurethanes (ISO 16365-2),
it is the intention to develop ISO 10350-3 for the acquisition and
presentation of comparable single-point data for thermoplastic
elastomers, based on this part of ISO 14910 and ISO 16365-2, as the
basis for the development of thermoplastic-elasto
