    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers requirements and methods of test for the material, dimensions, and workmanship, and the properties of extruded, compression molded, and injection molded PAEK sheet, plate, rod, and tubular bar manufactured from PAEK.

    1.2 The properties included in this specification are those required for the compositions covered. Requirements necessary to identify particular characteristics important to specialized applications are described by using the classification system given in Section 4.

    1.3 This specification allows the use of key clad plastics (see Section 4).

    1.4 The values are stated in inch-pound units and are regarded as the standard in all property and dimensional tables. For reference purposes, SI units are also included in Table 1.

    1.5 The following precautionary caveat pertains only to the test method portion Section 11, of this specification. 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 of regulatory limitations prior to use.

    Note 1—There is no known ISO equivalent to this standard.
