Certain processes, such as adhesion and FRP reinforcement can significantly reduce the permissible temperature limits. To request a quote for this test or others Click Here.

Specimen Preparation is based on classification of basic composition. Please call for more information on these special materials. End users, engineers, sellers, and buyers of polypropylene would in turn astn the callout to specify a material for their particular application. This specification defines pertinent properties, test methods, parameters and sample preparation for the evaluation of polypropylene for molding and extrusion.

High impact properties of this material give it superior structural integrity over Type I PVC in larger industrial applications. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application.

Excellent chemical resistance over a wide thermal range. Excellent resistance to acids and alkaline solutions. The properties included in this classification system are those required f4101 identify the compositions covered. Dark grey standard with additional colors available upon request. ECTFE has excellent chemical and mechanical properties, impact strength, asmt a broad service use temperature. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard.

No other units of measurement are included in this standard. Co-Polymer Polypropylene High-impact grade material which involves the additional copolymerization of propylene and ethylene in a secondary reactor. Individual methods outline specific guidelines as to time to test after molding.


Standard Specification for Polypropylene and Extrusion Materials

Additional test methods are also called out. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. Excellent chemical resistance to a broad range of acids, alkalis and most organic solvents up to ‘F. This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. If other requirements are necessary to identify particular characteristics important to specific applications, these shall be designated by using the suffixes given in Section 1.

Polymers consist of homopolymer, copolymers, and elastomer compounded with or without the addition of impact modifiers ethylene-propylene rubber, polyisobutylene rubber, and butyl rubbercolorants, stabilizers, lubricants, or reinforcements.

This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. Increased impact resistance over homopolymer polyproplene down to 0’F.

Extruded, stress free, consistently flat material. This specification covers polypropylene materials, suitable for injection molding and extrusion, that include unreinforced polypropylene with natural color only, unfilled and unreinforced polypropylene, calcium carbonate filled polypropylene, glass reinforced polypropylene, polypropylene copolymers, and talc filled polypropylene. Standard Specification for Polypropylene and Extrusion Materials. Controlled laboratory atmosphere is required.

Exceptional tensile strength and stiffness lends this material to almost any fabrication. Typically, different materials have unique requirements related to the generation of the specific properties. Tests shall be conducted on each of the specimens to determine the required physical and mechanical properties of the materials.

See individual methods for more information. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard Translated Version s: Light grey standard with additional colors available upon request. Color is light gray.

Ideal material for tank construction. It is extremely tough, resistant to UV light and self-extinguishing. Polymers consist of homopolymer, copolymers, and elastomer compounded with or without the addition of impact modifiers, for example, ethylene-propylene rubber, polyisobutylene rubber, and butyl rubber, colorants, stabilizers, lubricants, or reinforcements.


It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

The proportions of recycled, reconstituted, and reground material used, as well as the nature and the amount of any contaminant, cannot be practically covered in this classification system.

Superior chemical and heat resistance that allows continual operating temperatures up to ‘F.

PFA is also a suitable material for the highest ultra-pure requirements. D Test Asstm for Plastics: Standards can be obtained from appropriate standards authorities. Available in black pipe grade resin PE which meets NSF standard 14 and 61 for potable water applications.

Fabric-Backed Dual-Laminate and Specialty Materials We can also manufacture equipment fabricated from dual-laminate materials which combine the excellent chemical resistance of wstm with the superb mechanical strength of FRP construction.

Due to copyright restrictions, we are not able to provide copies of standards. Injection molding of test specimens is required for all tests outlined except heat stability testing. Following the requirements of this specification assures consistent characterization and valid comparisons of polypropylenes.

ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.

Excellent chemical resistance, frictional resistance, and strength up to ‘F. It is the responsibility of the supplier and the buyer of recycled, reconstituted, astmm reground materials to ensure compliance. This polymer offers extremely low permeability to liquids, gases, and vapors.
