- ASTM D882 : tensile properties of thin plastic sheeting
1.1 This test method covers the determination of tensile properties of plastics in the form of thin sheeting and films (less than 1.0 mm (0.04 in.) in thickness).
1.2 This test method can be used to test all plastics within the thickness range described and the capacity of the machine employed.
1.3 Specimen extension can be measured by grip separation, extension indicators, or displacement of gage marks.
1.4 The procedure for determining the tensile modulus of elasticity is included at one strain rate.
1.5 Test data obtained by this test method is relevant and appropriate for use in engineering design.
1.6 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values in parentheses are provided for information only.
