Plastics - Determination of Puncture Impact Behaviour of Rigid Plastics - Part 2: Instrumented Impact Testing
|Publication Date:||1 October 2000|
|ICS Code (Plastics in general):||83.080.01|
This part of ISO 6603 specifies a test method for the determination of puncture impact properties of rigid plastics, in the form of flat specimens, using instruments for measuring force and deflection. It is applicable if a force-deflection or force-time diagram, recorded at nominally constant striker velocity, is necessary for detailed characterization of the impact behaviour.
ISO 6603-1 can be used if it is sufficient to characterize the impact behaviour of plastics by a threshold value of impact-failure energy based on many test specimens.
It is not the purpose of this part of ISO 6603 to give an interpretation of the mechanism occurring on every particular point of the force-deflection diagram. These interpretations are a task for scientific research.
