Book of Standards Volume: 08.02
Historical (view previous versions of standard)
Significance and Use
The test procedures provide a standard method of obtaining data for research and development, quality control, acceptance and rejection under specifications, and special purposes.
The data obtained by these test methods are applicable to the material under conditions of the particular test and are not necessarily the same as obtained in other environments or use conditions.
1.1 These test methods apply to flexible closed cell materials made from olefin polymers or blends of olefin polymers with other polymers as defined in Section 3.
1.2 These test methods cover test procedures only. Product requirements are outlined in Specification D 4819
1.3 Unless specifically stated otherwise, by agreement between the purchaser and supplier, all tests shall be performed in accordance with the test methods specified in this standard.
1.4 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.
1.5 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability or regulatory limitations prior to use.
Note 1—This standard and ISO 7214 address the same subject matter, but differ in technical content.
