ASTM D638 – Standard Test Method for Tensile Properties of Plastics
Plastics Tensile Strength
ASTM D638 is the standard specification for plastics tensile testing.
ASTM D638 – This test method covers the determination of the tensile properties of unreinforced and reinforced plastics in the form of standard dumbbell-shaped
test specimens when tested under defined conditions of pretreatment, temperature, humidity, and testing machine speed.
This test method is applicable for testing materials of any thickness up to 14 mm (0.55 in.).
However, for testing specimens in the form of thin sheeting, including film less than 1.0 mm (0.04 in.) in thickness, ASTM standardis the preferred test method.
Materials with a thickness greater than 14 mm (0.55 in.) shall be reduced by machining.
*** NOTE 1 : This standard and ISO 527-1 address the same subject matter, but differ in technical content.
*** NOTE 2 : This test method may be used for testing phenolic molded resin or laminated materials. However, where these materials are used as electrical insulation,
such materials should be tested in accordance with Test Methods and Test Method .
*** NOTE 3 : For tensile properties of resin-matrix composites reinforced with oriented continuous or discontinuous high modulus >20-GPa (>3.0 × 106-psi) fibers,
tests shall be made in accordance with Test Method .
ASTM D638 – Geometry
This test uses a standard “dogbone” style sample.
There are a few different types of geometries, however the cross-sectional area is the only important factor.
Generally dogbones that are less than 14mm thick are tested. Please see the official specification for more information on the size and shape of the samples.
ASTM D638 – Solution
There are several types of grips that can work for this application and selecting the right one largely depends on the exact material and sample geometry.
PARSROS reccommends the roller grips for tests below about 500 lbs.
The hook attachment adds a nice self-centering feature which is also cost effective.
Vise Grips can also be used but wedge grips are necessary for higher strength samples.
Serrated grip jaws are able to bite into the sample and secure it properly.
