ASTM D1708 Micro Tensile
The ASTM D1708 test method is used for Tensile Testing of Plastics using Microtensile Specimens. The data obtained is used for quality control and acceptance or rejection of material under specifications. Read more about ASTM D1708 Micro Tensile below.
ASTM D1708 Micro Tensile Scope:
The Micro Tensile test by ASTM D1708 measures the force necessary to crack a sample and how much the sample extends or elongates till the point of breakage is achieved. Comparative tensile strength and elongation properties of plastics in the form of standard microtensile test specimens are determined under defined conditions of pretreatment, temperature, humidity, and testing machine speed. The data obtained is used for material specification, components to withstand application force, and material quality control.
For the ASTM D1708 test, specimen preparation, conditioning, dimensions, or testing parameters, or combination thereof, are considered as per the guidelines given in the materials specification. Samples are put in a specific grip separation in the grips of the Universal Test Machine and pulled until failure at a slow speed. Extensometer is not used and also tensile modulus is not measured.
Elevated or Reduced Temperature Test Procedure:
The Universal Test machine is equipped with a thermal chamber. This chamber allows traveling across the top and bottom of the chamber on the foundation and the crosshead of the Universal Tester. Inside the chamber, standard measurement devices are mounted and the thermal monitored atmosphere is tested in the same way as it is at ambient temperature. The chamber has internal electric heaters to maintain high temperatures and external carbon dioxide is used as the coolant to lower temperatures. The size of the chamber limits the maximum elongation that can be reached.
Samples can be die-cut, machined, or molded. The samples are dog bone in shape, 38 mm15 mm overall in size, 5 mm x 22 mm in the gauge area.
The following calculations can be done using tensile test results:
Tensile strength (at yield and at break)
Elongation and percent elongation at break
Elongation and percent elongation at yield
ASTM D1708 is a standard test method which determines the tensile and elongation properties of plastics in the form of standard microtensile test specimens.
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 test is a standard test method for the analysis of sulfochromate etch solutions 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.
