Standard Classification System for Styrenic Thermoplastic Elastomer Injection Molding and Extrusion Materials (TES) (Withdrawn 2008)
|Publication Date:||10 November 2000|
|ICS Code (Rubber):||83.060|
1.1 This classification and subsequent line callout (specification) cover styrenic block copolymer thermoplastic elastomer materials for injection molding and extrusion. Copolymers consist of polystyrene segments bound to rubbery segments. The rubbery segments may be saturated or unsaturated. Compounding ingredients may be present as necessary for the application. The compounding ingredients may consist of reinforcements, resins, plasticizers, fillers, stabilizers, and colorants. Recycled styrenic thermoplastic elastomers are not covered in this classification.
1.2 The properties included in this classification are those required to identify the compositions covered. There may be other requirements necessary to identify particular characteristics that are important to specialized applications. These may be described by using the suffixes specified in Section 5.
1.3 The values stated in SI units, as detailed in IEEE/ASTM SI 10, are to be regarded as the standard.
Note 1--There is no equivalent ISO standard.
