scope:

1.1 This test method covers the determination of the comparative tensile properties of glass fiber strands, yarns, and rovings in the form of impregnated rod test specimens when tested under defined conditions of pretreatment, temperature, humidity, and tension testing machine speed. This test method is applicable to continuous filament, glass fiber materials that have been coated with a resin compatible sizing. This method is intended for use in quality control and R D, and should not be used to develop composites design data.

Note 1-This method is technically equivalent to the short method described in ISO 9163.

Note 2-Prime consideration should be given to the use of a polymeric binder that produces specimens that yield the highest consistent values for the glass fiber material under test. Tensile properties may vary with specimen preparation, resin impregnation system, and speed and environment of testing. Consequently, where precise comparative results are desired, these factors must be carefully controlled.

1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.

Note 3-Prime consideration should be given to the use of a polymeric binder that produces specimens that yield the highest consistent values for the glass fiber material under test. Tensile properties may vary with specimen preparation, resin impregnation system, and speed and environment of testing. Consequently, where precise comparative results are desired, these factors must be carefully controlled.

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.
