Organization: ASTM International
Publication Date: 10 April 1997
Status: inactive
Page Count: 7
ICS Code (Rubber and plastics products in general): 83.140.01
scope:

1.1 These test methods cover the evaluation of fastener use with "as manufactured" plastic lumber and shapes through the use of two different testing procedures.

1.2 The test methods appear in the following order: Test Method A- Nail, Staple, or Screw Withdrawal Test; Test Method B- Lateral Nail, Staple, or Screw Resistance Test.

1.3 Plastic lumber and lastic shapes are currently made predominately from recycled plastics. However, this test method would also be applicable to similar manufactured plastic products made from virgin resins where the product is non-homogenous in the cross-section.

1.4 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The SI units given in parentheses are for information only.

1.5 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- There is no similar or equivalent ISO standard.
