Flexural Test Composites Four-Point Bending ASTM D6272
Determination of Flexural Properties of Reinforced and Unreinforced Plastics and Electrical Insulating Materials by Four-Point Bending done as per ASTM D6272. This standard test performed using various parameters, is used for toughened as well as not so toughened materials, including high modulus composites.
ASTM D6272 standard measures the impact required to bend brittle plastic materials according to a four-point loading system. This standard test is used for toughened as well as not so toughened materials, including high modulus composites. It is also used for materials that do not show failure within the limits of ASTM D790 (a three-point load test). The significant difference between the three-point and the four-point load tests is the location where the bend occurs. While stress is uniformly distributed between the two loading noses in the four-point bending method, the three-point bending method’s stress finds its location under the loading nose.
Flexural properties of several materials may vary depending upon temperature, strain, and sample thickness. Hence, it is desirable to test different materials at varied parameters.
In the first step of Flexural Test Composites Four-Point Bending by ASTM D6272, the sample is kept on a span distributing stress uniformly between the loading noses. Two procedures are to be taken care of within the ASTM D6272 test method. Procedure A is followed for samples with smaller deflection and for estimating modulus. Procedure B is followed for samples with larger deflections and for strength. Material specification needs to be followed. Support ratios depend upon material type and thickness. The ratio of load to support span could be 1:2 or 1:3.
Elevated or reduced temperature test procedure:
The universal test machine has an installed thermal machine. The chamber allows the test mounts from the base as well as the crosshead of the machine. It is done so that test mounts pass through the top & bottom of the chamber. Set test fixtures are installed inside the chamber. Testing is conducted inside an ambient temperature. The chamber has built-in heaters for elevating the temperatures. For reduced temperatures, the chamber uses CO2 as a coolant.
ASTM D6272 uses sample sizes with thickness t<1/16 inches, thickness t> 1/16 inches, thermosetting sheet, molded substances, and high-strength toughened composites. Five specimens are usually tested. In addition, for materials with variant properties in different directions, edgewise samples may be tested.

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.
