BS EN ISO 527-3:2018

Plastics. Determination of tensile properties. Test conditions for films and sheets

Status : Current   Published : December 2018



What is this standard about?

1.1 This document specifies the conditions for determining the tensile properties of plastic films or sheets less than 1 mm thick, based upon the general principles given in ISO 527‑1.

NOTE For sheets greater than 1 mm thick, the user is referred to ISO 527‑2.

1.2 The methods are used to investigate the tensile behaviour of the test specimens and for determining the tensile strength, tensile modulus and other aspects of the tensile stress/strain relationship under the conditions defined.

1.3 This document is not normally suitable for determining the tensile properties of

a) cellular materials, and

b) plastics reinforced by textile fibres.

1.4 The methods are selectively suitable for use with the following materials:

— rigid and semi-rigid (see 3.12 and 3.13, respectively) moulding, extrusion and cast thermoplastic materials, including filled and reinforced compounds in addition to unfilled types; rigid and semi-rigid thermoplastics sheets and films;

— rigid and semi-rigid thermosetting moulding materials, including filled and reinforced compounds; rigid and semi-rigid thermosetting sheets, including laminates;

— fibre-reinforced thermosets and thermoplastic composites incorporating unidirectional or non-unidirectional reinforcements, such as mat, woven fabrics, woven rovings, chopped strands, combination and hybrid reinforcement, rovings and milled fibres; sheet made from pre-impregnated materials (prepregs),

— thermotropic liquid crystal polymers. The methods are not normally suitable for use with rigid cellular materials, for which ISO 1926 is used, or for sandwich structures containing cellular materials.
