Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards

bodies (ISO member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out

through ISO technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical

committee has been established has the right to be represented on that committee. International

organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work.

ISO collaborates closely with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on all matters of

electrotechnical standardization.

The procedures used to develop this document and those intended for its further maintenance are

described in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 1. In particular, the different approval criteria needed for the

different types of ISO documents should be noted. This document was drafted in accordance with the

editorial rules of the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2 (see www.iso.org/directives).

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of

patent rights. ISO shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights. Details of

any patent rights identified during the development of the document will be in the Introduction and/or

on the ISO list of patent declarations received (see www.iso.org/patents).

This fourth edition cancels and replaces the third edition (ISO 11403-2:2012), which has been

technically revised.
The main changes are as follows:

— the titles of Figure 1 and Figure 2 have been modified and Key tables have been added;

— the procedure for getting enthalpy/temperature curve (6.2) has been updated;

— the procedure for getting linear-expansion/temperature curve (6.3) has been updated;

— footnotes regarding transition temperatures have been added in Tables 2 and 3;

— an explanation that Clauses 4 and 5 do not apply in to enthalpy/temperature curve and melt shear

viscosity, 6.2 and 6.4 respectively, has been added.

Introduction

This document has been prepared because users of plastics find sometimes 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.

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 will often be 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 may be significantly different from that in specific regions of a moulded component. Under

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

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

data.

The ISO 10350 series 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 results in

Introduction

This International Standard has been prepared because users of plastics find sometimes 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 International Standard 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.

ISO 10350 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. The present

International Standard 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 standard. 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 will often be 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 standard employ, where possible, the multipurpose tensile bar, and the

polymer structure in this test specimen may be significantly different from that in specific regions of

a moulded component. Under these circumstances, therefore, the data will not be 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 various parts of this International Standard together define the means for acquiring

and presenting a core set of comparable data for use in material selection. Use of these standards

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

data. Furthermore, reference to these standards will simplify 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 standard. For some tests

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

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

standard.

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. For other

properties, however, ISO standards either do not exist or exhibit shortcomings that complicate their

use at present for the generation of comparable data (see Annex A). The standard 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.
