Polyethylene thermoplastic materials - Designation
|Publication Date:||1 July 1972|
|ICS Code (Thermoplastic materials):||83.080.20|
SCOPE AND FIELD OF APPLICATION
This International Standard specifies the method to be used for the identification of polyethylene materials in such a manner that manufacturer and purchaser can agree on the substantial similarity of different commercial lots or shipments. Materials are characterized by a classification system based on basic polymer parameters and recommended end uses.
Although major end use(s) are indicated, this is not intended to be restrictive, nor does it imply a guarantee of suitability under particular processing and use conditions.
This International Standard does not provide engineering data, not for special modifications which may be necessary in certain applications; such modifications and the relevant test methods shall be agreed between purchaser and supplier.
