This document specifies test procedures for the acquisition and presentation of multipoint data on the following mechanical properties of plastics:
— dynamic modulus;
— tensile properties at constant test speed;
— ultimate stress and strain;
— tensile stress-strain curves;
— tensile creep;
— Charpy impact strength;
— puncture impact behaviour.
The test methods and test conditions apply predominantly to those plastics that can be injection- or compression-moulded or prepared as sheets of specified thickness from which specimens of the appropriate size can be machined.
