Dark grey standard with additional colors available upon request. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. Extruded, stress free, consistently flat material. Excellent chemical resistance to a broad range of acids, alkalis and most organic solvents up to ‘F.

See individual methods for more information. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

Increased impact resistance over homopolymer polyproplene down to 0’F. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use.

Standard Specification for Polypropylene and Extrusion Materials

End users, engineers, sellers, and buyers of polypropylene would in turn utilize the callout to specify a material for their particular application. Certain processes, such as adhesion and FRP reinforcement can significantly reduce the permissible temperature limits.

Exceptional tensile strength and stiffness lends this material to almost any fabrication. The proportions of recycled, reconstituted, and reground material used, as well as the nature and the amount of any contaminant, cannot be practically covered in this classification system.

High impact properties of this material give it superior structural integrity over Type I PVC in larger industrial applications. Ideal material for tank construction.

Standards can be obtained from appropriate standards authorities. Available in black pipe grade resin PE which meets NSF standard 14 and 61 for potable water applications. Tests shall be conducted on each of the specimens to determine the required physical and mechanical properties of the materials.

Fabric-Backed Dual-Laminate and Specialty Materials We can also manufacture equipment fabricated from dual-laminate materials which combine the excellent chemical resistance of thermoplastics with the superb mechanical strength of FRP construction.

This specification defines pertinent properties, test methods, parameters and asmt preparation for the evaluation of polypropylene for molding and extrusion. ECTFE has excellent chemical and mechanical properties, impact strength, and a broad service use temperature.

Injection molding of test specimens is required for all tests outlined except heat stability testing. PFA is also a suitable material for the highest ultra-pure requirements. Color is light gray.

If other requirements are necessary to identify particular characteristics important to specific applications, these shall be designated by using the suffixes given in Section 1. Excellent chemical resistance over a wide thermal range.

Co-Polymer Polypropylene High-impact grade material which involves the additional copolymerization of propylene and ethylene in a secondary reactor. Due to copyright restrictions, we are not able to provide copies of standards.

This polymer offers extremely low permeability to liquids, gases, and vapors. It is the responsibility of the supplier and the buyer of recycled, reconstituted, and reground materials to ensure compliance. This specification covers polypropylene materials, suitable for injection molding and extrusion, that include unreinforced polypropylene with natural color only, unfilled and unreinforced polypropylene, calcium carbonate filled polypropylene, glass reinforced polypropylene, polypropylene copolymers, and talc filled polypropylene.


Please call for more information on these special materials. It is extremely tough, resistant to UV light and self-extinguishing. This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. D Test Method for Plastics: Specimen Preparation is based on classification of basic composition. The specimens for the various materials shall conform to the following requirements: Excellent chemical resistance to both acid and alkai solutions for temperatures up to maximum of ‘F.

Controlled laboratory atmosphere is required. Polymers consist of homopolymer, copolymers, and elastomer compounded with or without the addition of impact modifiers ethylene-propylene rubber, polyisobutylene rubber, and butyl rubbercolorants, stabilizers, lubricants, or reinforcements.

No other units of measurement are included in this standard. The properties included in this classification system are those required to identify the compositions covered. Polymers consist of homopolymer, copolymers, and elastomer compounded with or without the addition of impact modifiers, for example, ethylene-propylene rubber, polyisobutylene rubber, and butyl rubber, colorants, stabilizers, lubricants, or reinforcements. Excellent chemical resistance, frictional resistance, and strength up to ‘F.

Excellent resistance to acids and alkaline solutions. All grades are self-extinguishing. Additional test methods are also called out.

Individual methods outline specific guidelines as to time to test after molding. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard.
