Determination of compressive properties of polymer matrix composite laminates by a combined loading compression (CLC) test fixture using ASTM D6641. The compressive strength of polymer composite materials is a significant property to be considered while designing products for different applications.
For product design purposes, the compressive strength of composite materials is a significant property. The combined loading compression (CLC) method using ASTM D6641 is a standard compression test method to determine compressive properties of polymer matrix composite laminates by applying combined end-loading and shear-loading utilizing a combined loading compression fixture. Other polymeric materials can also be tested using this test method.
A metallic test fixture is used for this test.A long and narrow specimen without a tab is inserted into the two halves of the test fixture, ensuring that the specimen ends are leveled with the top and bottom ends of the test fixture. All the bolts in the fixture are tightened to a definite torque to hold the test specimen in place. The loaded fixture is placed in a Universal Testing Machine. A strain measuring device can also be used, where strain gauges are attached to both sides of the specimen.The specimen is compressed to failure, and the mean strain from the front and rear sides of the specimen are measured.
ASTM E572 test method covers the analysis of stainless and alloy steels by Wavelength Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometry (WDXRF). It provides rapid, multi-element determinations with sufficient accuracy to assure product quality.
The ASTM D2674 is a standard test method for the analysis of sulfochromate etches solution used in the surface preparation of aluminum. The ASTM D2674 standard specifies a method for determining the efficacy of an etchant used to prepare the surface of aluminum alloys for subsequent adhesive bonding.
An immunological method for quantization of Hevea Natural Rubber (HNRL) proteins using rabbit anti-HNRL serum. Rabbits immunized with HNRL proteins react to the majority of the proteins present, and their sera have the capability to detect most if not all the proteins in HNRL.
ASTM G65 measures the resistance of metallic materials to abrasion using the dry sand/rubber wheel apparatus. The quality, durability, and toughness of the sample are determined using this test. Metallic materials are ranked in their resistance to scratching abrasion under a controlled environment.
ASTM E2141 test methods provide accelerated aging and monitoring of the performance of time-dependent electrochromic devices (ECD) integrated in insulating glass units (IGU). This test helps to understand the relative serviceability of electrochromic glazings applied on ECD.
ASTM C724 test method is used in analyzing the quality and ease of maintenance of a ceramic decoration on architectural-type glass. This test method is useful in the acknowledgment of technical standards.
