Standard Test Method for High Speed Puncture Properties of Plastics Using Load and Displacement Sensors
|Publication Date:||10 December 2002|
|ICS Code (Plastics in general):||83.080.01|
1.1 This test method covers the determination of puncture properties of plastics, including films, over a range of test velocities.
1.2 Test data obtained by this test method is relevant and appropriate for use in engineering design.
1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.
1.4 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.
Note 1-This specification does not closely conform to ISO 6603.2. The only similarity between the two tests is that they are both instrumented impact tests. The differences in striker, fixture, and specimen geometries and in test velocity can produce significantly different test results.
