Specimen gripping Accurate strain measurement Reporting calculations in compliance with the standard Instron’s Solution: However, the rate of strain, specimen parameters, and especially flaws can cause large variations in the results. Subscribe to Instron News! ASTM D uses 1″ x 6″ strips die cut from thin sheet or film. Subscribe to Our Newsletters. Since the physical properties of many materials especially thermoplastics can vary depending on ambient temperature, it is sometimes appropriate to test materials at temperatures that simulate the intended end use environment. Note 2—Tensile properties of plastics 1.

Validating the specifications, value and safety of your raw materials, products and assets. ISO allows for additional specimen configurations, specifies different test speeds, and requires an extensometer or gage marks on the specimen.

ASTM D – 18 Standard Test Method for Tensile Properties of Thin Plastic Sheeting

However, data asrm such tests cannot be astm d882 significant for applications differing widely from the force-time scale of the test employed. Global Reach Intertek is the industry leader with over 42, people in 1, locations in over countries. The chamber has internal electric heaters for elevated temperatures and uses external astm d882 dioxide gas as a coolant for reduced temperatures. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard.

The modulus determination is generally based on the use of grip separation as a measure of extension; however, the desirability of using extensometers, as described in 6. Note d8882 properties of plastics 1. Tensile properties of plastics 1.

Tensile Properties (Sheet) ASTM D882

However, the rate of strain, specimen parameters, and especially flaws can cause large variations in the results. Please confirm that you agree with our privacy and cookies policy to submit this form.

Film is defined in Terminology D as an optional term for sheeting having a nominal thickness no greater than 0. For ASTM D the test speed and grip astm d882 are based on the elongation to break of the material. The data is often used to specify a material, to design parts to withstand application force and as a quality control check of materials.

ASTM D882 – Tensile Testing of Thin Plastic Sheeting

In that astm d882, caution is advised in utilizing TEB test results for end-use ast applications. Tensile tests measure the force required to break a specimen and the extent to astj the specimen stretches or elongates to that breaking aatm.

Standards can be obtained from appropriate standard authorities. Inspection Validating the specifications, value and safety of astm d882 raw materials, products and assets. Elevated or Reduced Temperature Test Procedure: When different materials are being compared for stiffness, specimens of identical dimensions must be employed.


Send us a request Wilton UK: Assurance Enabling you to identify and mitigate the intrinsic risk asrm your operations, supply chains and business processes. A thermal chamber is installed on the Universal Test machine. The chamber is designed to allow the test mounts astm d882 the base and crosshead of the Universal Tester to pass through the top and bottom of the chamber. Note 1—Film has been arbitrarily defined as sheeting having nominal thickness not greater than 0. For many materials, there can be a specification that requires the use of this test method, but with some procedural modifications that take precedence when adhering to the specification.

Users of previous versions of software such as Bluehill 2 and Bluehill 3 can easily astm d882 to the newest version of Bluehill. Elongation and tensile modulus can be calculated from crosshead displacement, or with an extensometer.

Using features such as astm d882 appropriate preload is critical for achieving accurate, repeatable results. Note 4—This test method is similar to ISObut is not considered technically equivalent.
