- Rigid cellular plastics — Determination of compression properties
- This document specifies methods for determining the compressive strength and corresponding relative deformation, the compressive stress at 10 % relative deformation, and the compressive modulus of rigid cellular plastics.
- Cellular plastics and rubbers — Determination of apparent density
- ISO 845:2006 specifies a method for determining the apparent overall density and the apparent core density of cellular plastics and rubbers.
- If the material to be tested includes skins formed during a moulding/extrusion, the apparent overall density or the apparent core density, or both, can be determined. If the material does not have skins formed during moulding, the term “overall density” is not applicable.
- Rigid cellular plastics — Determination of flexural properties — Part 1: Basic bending test
- ISO 1209-1:2007 specifies a simple method for assessing the behaviour of a bar of rigid cellular plastic under the action of three-point bending.
- It may be used to determine either the load for a specified deformation or the load at break.
- The version of the method specified uses small test specimens and does not produce pure bending. Hence it does not permit the calculation of the flexural strength or the apparent flexural modulus (modulus of elasticity). The user is referred to ISO 1209-2 for the determination of these parameters.
- The method is not applicable to cellular plastics in which significant crushing is observed. Numerical values should be compared only when determined on materials of similar physical properties and dimensions.
- The method is limited to materials of 20 mm thickness or greater.
- Rigid cellular plastics — Determination of flexural properties — Part 2: Determination of flexural strength and apparent flexural modulus of elasticity
- ISO 1209-2:2007 specifies a method for determining the flexural strength and the apparent flexural modulus of elasticity of rigid cellular plastics.

- This International Standard specifies a general procedure for the determination of the volume percentage of open and of closed cells of rigid cellular plastics, by measurement first of the geometrical volume and then of the air-impenetrable volume of test specimens.
- The procedure includes the correction of the apparent open-cell volume by taking into account the surface cells opened by cutting during specimen preparation. Three alternative methods (method 1, method 2a and method 2b), and corresponding apparatus, are specified for the measurement of the impenetrable volume.
- Cellular plastics — Determination of the coefficient of linear thermal expansion of rigid materials at sub-ambient temperatures
