Standard Test Method for Rigidity of Polyolefin Film and Sheeting
|Publication Date:||15 November 2006|
|ICS Code (Films and sheets):||83.140.10|
This test method describes two procedures for measuring the rigidity of polyolefin film and sheeting.
Procedure A prescribes a procedure using high-voltage static eliminators and the use of TFE-fluorocarbon2-coated plates to overcome the spurious effects of static electricity and friction.
Procedure B prescribes the use of a fine powder on uncoated plates to achieve a similar effect.
NOTE 1-Although the two procedures are designed to achieve similar effect, they may not achieve the same results.
