Introduction

This document has been prepared because users of plastics sometimes find that available data cannot

be used readily to compare the properties of similar materials, especially when the data have been

supplied by different sources. Even when the same standard tests have been used, they often allow

the adoption of a wide range of alternative test conditions, and the data obtained are not necessarily

comparable. The purpose of this document is to identify specific methods and conditions of test to be

used for the acquisition and presentation of data in order that valid comparisons between materials

can be made.
[1]

The ISO 10350 series is concerned with single-point data. Such data represent the most basic method

for characterizing materials and are useful for the initial stages of material selection. This document

identifies test conditions and procedures for the measurement and presentation of a more substantial

quantity of data. Each property here is characterized by multipoint data which demonstrate how

that property depends upon important variables such as time, temperature and environmental

effects. Additional properties are also considered in this document. These data therefore enable more

discriminating decisions to be made regarding a material’s suitability for a particular application.

Some data are also considered adequate for undertaking predictions of performance in service and of

optimum processing conditions for moulding a component, although it should be recognized that, for

purposes of design, additional data are often needed. One reason for this is that some properties are

strongly dependent upon the physical structure of the material. The test procedures referred to in this

document employ, where possible, the multipurpose tensile bar, and the polymer structure in this test

specimen can be significantly different from that in specific regions of a moulded component. Under

these circumstances, therefore, the data are not suitable for accurate design calculations for product

performance. The material supplier should be consulted for specific information on the applicability of

data.

ISO 10350 and the ISO 11403 series together define the means for acquiring and presenting a core

set of comparable data for use in material selection. Use of these International Standards should

result in a rationalization of effort and a reduction of cost associated with provision of these data.

Furthermore, reference to these International Standards simplifies the development of data models for

the computerized storage and exchange of data concerning material properties.

Where appropriate, values for test variables have been specified by this document. For some tests

however, owing to the wide range of conditions over which different plastics perform, this document

gives guidance in the selection of certain test conditions so that they cover the operating range for that

polymer. Because, in general, the properties and performance specifications for different polymers

differ widely, there is no obligation to generate data under all the test conditions specified in this

document.

Data on a wide range of properties are needed to enable plastics to be selected and used in the large

variety of applications to which they are suited. ISO standards describe experimental procedures which

are suitable for the acquisition of relevant information on many of these properties. The ISO 11403

series has therefore been divided into parts so that each part can be developed independently. In this

way, additional properties can be included as new or revised standards become available.

DRAFT INTERNATIONAL STANDARD ISO/DIS 11403-1:2020(E)
Plastics — Acquisition and presentation of comparable
multipoint data —
Part 1:
Mechanical properties
1 Scope

This document specifies test procedures for the acquisition and presentation of multipoint data on the

following mechanical properties of plastics:
— dynamic modulus;
— tensile properties at constant test speed;
— ultimate stress and strain;
— tensile stress-strain curves;
— tensile creep;
— Charpy impact strength;
— puncture impact behaviour.

The test methods and test conditions apply predominantly to those plastics that can be injection- or

compression-moulded or prepared as sheets of specified thickness from which specimens of the

appropriate size can be machined.
