This test method covers the determination of the impact resistance of thermoplastic pipe and fittings under specified conditions of impact by means of a tup (falling weight). Three interchangeable striking noses are used on the tup, differing in geometrical configuration. Two specimen holders are described.
The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The values in parentheses are provided for information purposes only.
