1.1 This practice covers the procedures for testing of geogrids for chemical resistance to liquids.
1.2 This practice describes methods for measuring changes in physical and mechanical properties caused by immersion in test solutions that may be representative of anticipated end-use conditions.
1.3 This practice describes procedures for required and recommended testing of geogrids.
1.4 Evaluation or interpretation of test data is beyond the scope of this practice.
1.5 This practice is intended to be used in conjunction with D 5322, or D 5496, or both. The scope of this practice is limited to testing and reporting procedures for unexposed and exposed geogrid coupons.
1.6 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. Specific precautionary statements are given in Section 7.
