ASTM D882 - Standard Test Method for Tensile Properties of Thin Plastic Sheeting

2017-07-07   WANCE

This test method covers the determination of tensile properties of plastics in the form of thin sheeting, including film (less than 1.0 mm (0.04 in.) in thickness).

This test method may be used to test all plastics within the thickness range described and the capacity of the machine employed.

Static Weighing, Constant-Rate-of-Grip Separation

Test—This test method employs a constant rate of separation of the grips holding the ends of the test specimen. Specimen extension may be measured in these test methods by grip separation, extension indicators, or displacement of gage marks.

A procedure for determining the tensile modulus of elasticity is included at one strain rate.

Test data obtained by this test method is relevant and appropriate for use in engineering design.

The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values in parentheses are provided for information only.
