Standard Test Method for Tensile Strength and Elongation of Pressure-Sensitive Tapes
|Publication Date:||10 March 1996|
|ICS Code (Packaging materials and accessories):||55.040|
1.1 This test method covers the measurement of tensile strength
(breaking strength) and stretch properties (elongation and "F" value)
for pressure-sensitive tapes. It includes procedures for machine
direction cross-direction tests and tests for tapes with low and high
stretch and reinforced backings. It also includes a procedure for
obtaining stretch force ("F" value) in conjunction with a
determination of tensile strength. These procedures employ a
1.2 The values stated in either SI or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system must be used independently, without combining values in any way.
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.
