EN ISO 6259-1 Thermoplastics Pipes – Determination of Tensile Properties

Part 1: General Test Method


ISO 6259-1 specifies a method of determining the tensile properties of thermoplastics pipes, including in particular the following properties:

Stress at yield point;

Elongation at break


Tensile Testing Machine

Complying with ISO 5893

Grips, for holding the test piece and attached to the machine so that the major axis of the test piece coincides with the direction of pull through the centreline

of the assembly.

This can be achieved, for example, by using centering pins in the grips.

The test piece shall be held such that slip relative to the grips is prevented as far as possible and this shall be effected with the type of grip that maintains

or increases pressure on the test piece as the force applied to the test piece increases. The clamping system shall not cause premature fracture at the grips


Suitable for determining the gauge length of the test piece at any moment during the test.

The instrument shall be essentially free from inertia lag at the specified test speeds and shall be capable of measuring deformation to an accuracy of within 1 %.

Where a mechanical extensometer is used, this shall be fixed to the test piece in such a way that the test piece undergoes the minimum damage and distortion and

no slip occurs between it and the extensometer.

The measurement of elongation of the test piece on the basis of the movement of the grips lacks accuracy and shall be avoided whenever possible.

NOTE — It is desirable, but not essential, for this instrument to record this length, or any variation in it, automatically as a function of the stress in the test piece.

*** Before conducting ISO 6259-1 , it is important to read the entire specification. Standards can be obtained from appropriate standard authorities.
