Geotextiles and geotextile-related products - Screening test method for determining the resistance to hydrolysis in water

This document specifies a screening test method for determining the resistance of geotextiles and geotextile-related products to hydrolysis by exposing test specimens to water at elevated temperatures, followed by an evaluation of the changes in properties resulting from such exposure. It is intended as a means of establishing a minimum acceptable level of durability.
The tests described in this document do not allow the determination of reduction factors. The tests described in this document are screening tests to show the ability of a product to serve for a certain time. The reference strength and retained strength of products investigated in this document need to be determined in the same way in accordance with EN 12226.
The test is applicable to any geotextile and geotextile-related product susceptible to hydrolysis, in particular polyester and polyamide based materials, and in addition to the yarns from which these geotextiles are made.
This method is not intended for determining the resistance of geotextiles to hydrolysis under highly acid or alkaline conditions.
NOTE   Performance tests to predict long-term lifetime or to compare products of different polymers or of similar polymers with differing structures can be based on the same method but with a wider range of temperatures and durations.

Geotextilien und geotextilverwandte Produkte - Auswahlprüfverfahren zur Bestimmung der Hydrolysebeständigkeit in Wasser

Dieses Dokument legt ein Prüfverfahren zur Bestimmung der Beständigkeit von Geotextilien und geotextilverwandten Produkten gegen Hydrolyse fest, indem Messproben bei erhöhten Temperaturen Wasser ausgesetzt und dann bewertet werden, um die durch diese Einflüsse bedingten Eigenschaftsänderungen zu ermitteln. Das Prüfverfahren ist zur Festlegung einer Mindestanforderung für die Beständigkeit vorgesehen.
Die in diesem Dokument beschriebenen Prüfungen erlauben keine Bestimmung von Reduktionsfaktoren. Die in diesem Dokument beschriebenen Prüfungen sind Auswahlprüfverfahren, die die Funktionsfähigkeit eines Produkts über einen bestimmten Zeitraum aufzeigen. Die Referenzfestigkeit und die Restfestigkeit der in diesem Dokument untersuchten Produkte müssen auf dieselbe Art und Weise nach EN 12226 bestimmt werden.
Die Prüfung ist auf alle hydrolyseanfälligen Geotextilien und geotextilverwandten Produkte anwendbar, besonders auf Materialien auf Polyester- und Polyamidbasis und zusätzlich auf die Garne, aus denen diese Geotextilien hergestellt sind.
Dieses Verfahren ist nicht zur Bestimmung der Beständigkeit von Geotextilien gegen Hydrolyse unter stark sauren oder alkalischen Bedingungen vorgesehen.
ANMERKUNG   Auf der Grundlage dieses Verfahrens können auch anwendungsbezogene Prüfungen zur Vorhersage der Langzeitlebensdauer oder zum Vergleich von Produkten aus unterschiedlichen Polymeren oder aus gleichen Polymeren mit unterschiedlicher Struktur entwickelt werden, wobei jedoch für Temperatur und Dauer weitere Bereiche ausgewählt werden.

Géotextiles et produits apparentés - Méthode d'essai sélective pour la détermination de la résistance à l'hydrolyse dans l'eau

Le présent document spécifie une méthode d’essai sélective permettant de déterminer la résistance des géotextiles et des produits apparentés aux géotextiles à l’hydrolyse par exposition d’éprouvettes à de l’eau à températures élevées, suivie d’une évaluation des changements de propriétés résultant de cette exposition. Le but de cet essai est d’établir un niveau minimal acceptable de durabilité.
Les essais décrits dans ce document ne permettent pas la détermination de facteurs de réduction. Les essais décrits dans ce document constituent des essais sélectifs permettant d’évaluer l’aptitude de service d’un produit pour une durée spécifique. La résistance de référence et la résistance résiduelle des produits examinés dans ce document nécessitent d’être déterminés conformément à l’EN 12226.
L’essai s’applique à tous les géotextiles et produits apparentés aux géotextiles sensibles à l’hydrolyse, notamment les matériaux à base de polyester et de polyamide et par extension aux fils dont les géotextiles sont faits.
La méthode décrite n’est pas prévue pour la détermination de la résistance des géotextiles à l’hydrolyse dans des conditions élevées d’alcalinité ou d’acidité.
NOTE   Les essais de performance destinés à prévoir la durée de vie à long terme ou à comparer les produits composés de polymères différents ou des mêmes polymères mais ayant une structure différente peuvent utiliser la même méthode mais avec une plage plus large de températures et de durées.

Introduction
This document describes a screening test method to establish a minimum acceptance level of resistance
of geotextiles and geotextile-related products to soil moisture.
In certain polymers moisture leads to hydrolysis throughout the thickness of the fibre (internal
hydrolysis) but the rate of degradation is such that over short periods it is only measurable at elevated
temperatures, e.g. by immersion in hot water.
