Standard Test Methods for Tension Testing of Nonmetallic Gasket Materials
|Publication Date:||15 January 1995|
1.1 These test methods cover the determination of tensile strength of certain nonmetallic gasketing materials at room temperature. The types of materials covered are those containing asbestos and other inorganic fibers (Type 1), cork (Type 2), cellulose or other organic fiber (Type 3), and flexible graphite (Type 5) as described in Classification F 104. These test methods are not applicable to the testing of vulcanized rubber, a method for which is described in Test Methods D 412 nor for rubber O-rings, a method for which is described in Test Methods D 1414.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values in parentheses are for information only.
1.3 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.
