Thermoplastic elastomers - Nomenclature and abbreviated terms (ISO 18064:2022)

This document establishes a nomenclature system for thermoplastic elastomers based on the chemical
composition of the polymer or polymers involved. It specifies symbols and abbreviated terms used to
identify thermoplastic elastomers in industry, commerce, and government. It is not intended to conflict
with, but to supplement, existing trade names and trademarks.
NOTE 1 The name of the thermoplastic elastomer is intended to be used in technical papers and presentations
followed by the abbreviated term used to designate the elastomer in this document.
NOTE 2 Annex A gives thermoplastic-elastomer abbreviated terms that have been used in the past in materials
standards, technical bulletins, textbooks, patents, and trade literature.

Thermoplastische Elastomere - Nomenklatur und Kurzzeichen (ISO 18064:2022)

Dieses Dokument legt ein Nomenklatursystem für thermoplastische Elastomere auf der Grundlage der chemischen Zusammensetzung des bzw. der betreffenden Polymere fest. Die Norm definiert die zum Identifizieren thermoplastischer Elastomere in der Industrie, im Handel und auf Regierungsebene verwendeten Symbole und Kurzzeichen. Ziel ist es nicht, mit bestehenden Handelsnamen und (geschützten) Warenzeichen in Konflikt zu kommen, sondern diese zu ergänzen.
ANMERKUNG 1 In technischen Dokumenten und Präsentationen sollte der Name des thermoplastischen Elastomers gefolgt von dem in diesem Dokument zum Bezeichnen des Elastomers verwendeten Kurzzeichen verwendet werden.
ANMERKUNG 2 Anhang A gibt Kurzzeichen für thermoplastische Elastomere an, die in der Vergangenheit in Werkstoffnormen, technischen Bulletins, Lehrbüchern, Patenten und der Fachliteratur verwendet wurden.

Élastomères thermoplastiques - Nomenclature et termes abrégés (ISO 18064:2022)

Le présent document établit un système de nomenclature des élastomères thermoplastiques fondé sur la composition chimique du polymère ou des polymères concernés. Il spécifie les symboles et les termes abrégés utilisés pour identifier les élastomères thermoplastiques dans l'industrie, le commerce et le secteur public. Il est destiné à compléter plutôt qu'à concurrencer les dénominations commerciales et les marques de commerce existantes.
NOTE 1      Le nom de l'élastomère thermoplastique est destiné à être utilisé dans les documents et présentations techniques, suivi du terme abrégé utilisé pour désigner l’élastomère dans le présent document.
NOTE 2      L'Annexe A donne les termes abrégés des élastomères thermoplastiques utilisés par le passé dans des normes relatives aux matériaux, dans des bulletins techniques, dans des livres scolaires, dans des brevets et dans des documentations commerciales.

Plastomerni elastomeri - Nomenklatura in okrajšave (ISO 18064:2022)

Ta dokument vzpostavlja sistem nomenklature za plastomerne elastomere na osnovi kemične sestave določenega polimera oziroma polimerov. Določa simbole in okrajšave izrazov, ki se uporabljajo za označevanje plastomernih elastomerov v industrijskem, trgovinskem in vladnem sektorju. Njegov namen ni nasprotovati obstoječim trgovskim imenom in blagovnim znamkam, temveč jih dopolniti.
OPOMBA 1: Ime plastomernega elastomera se predvidoma uporablja v tehničnih dokumentih in predstavitvah, sledi pa mu okrajšava izraza, ki se uporablja za označevanje elastomera v zadevnem dokumentu.
OPOMBA 2: V dodatku A so navedene okrajšave izrazov za plastomerne elastomere, ki so se v preteklosti uporabljale v standardih za materiale, tehničnih biltenih, učbenikih, patentih in strokovni literaturi.

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).

Any trade name used in this document is information given for the convenience of users and does not

constitute an endorsement.

For an explanation of the voluntary nature of standards, the meaning of ISO specific terms and

expressions related to conformity assessment, as well as information about ISO's adherence to

the World Trade Organization (WTO) principles in the Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT), see

Introduction

Thermoplastic elastomers combine many of the attributes and features of both vulcanized thermoset

rubber and thermoplastic materials. It is, therefore, important that any system of classification and

nomenclature for this rapidly expanding polymer sector should be acceptable to both the rubber

and plastics industries. Neither of the existing International Standards for the nomenclature and

abbreviated terms for rubber (ISO 1629) and for plastics (ISO 1043-1) is suitable for this purpose. The

system in this document has been devised to avoid any conflict of interests or ambiguity, permit the

use of existing terms in the construction of abbreviations for thermoplastic elastomers, and allow for

future developments or expansion.
This document uses established abbreviated terms. Its aim is
