Standard Test Method for Tensile Properties of Plastics by Use of Microtensile Specimens
This test method covers certain material specifications for which a history of data has been obtained using the standard microtensile specimen. In general, this test method is superseded for general use by either Test Methods D882 or Test Method D638. The very small Type V specimen in Test Method D638 is the recommended specimen when limited amounts of material are available.
This test method covers the determination of the comparative tensile strength and elongation properties of plastics in the form of standard microtensile test specimens when tested under defined conditions of pretreatment, temperature, humidity, and testing machine speed. This method is applicable when using specimens of any thickness up to 3.2 mm (1/8 in.), including thin films.
