Significance and Use
Coated fabrics and rubber products made from coated fabrics are important items of commerce, and adequate test methods must be available to ensure the quality of these products. These test methods provide for this testing capability.
1.1 These test methods cover, but are not limited to, rubber-coated fabrics, that is, tarpaulins, rainwear, and similar products.
1.2 The scope of each of these test methods appears in the section in which the test method is described.
1.3 The test methods appear in the following sections:
|Dimensions and Mass||7-10|
| Procedure AGrab Test Method||12-15 |
| Procedure BCut Strip Test Method||16|
| Bursting Strength||18-21|
| Tearing Strength||26|
| Procedure APendulum Method||27|
| Procedure BTongue Tear Method||28-31|
| Trapezoidal Tear|| 32-35|
| Hydrostatic Resistance|| 36|
| Procedure AMullen Type Tester||37-40|
| Procedure BRising Water Column Tester||41-44|
| Adhesion Coating (to Fabrics)||45-48 |
|Strength of Coating||49-53|
| Low Temperature Bend Test||59|
| Low Temperature Impact Test||60|
|Low-Temperature Crack Resistance||61-65|
| Seam Strength||66-71|
| Accelerated Heat Aging (Oven Method)||72-79|
| Dead Load Seam Strength||80-83|
