    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers the operating characteristics of three types of tensile testing machines used for the determination of the force-elongation properties of textile materials. These types of tensile testing machines are:

    1.1.1 Constant-rate-of-extension, CRE.

    1.1.2 Constant-rate-of-traverse, CRT.

    1.1.3 Constant-rate-of-loading (force), CRL.

    1.2 Specifications for tensile testing machines to measure other tensile-related properties of textile materials not covered by this standard are given in the ASTM standards using those machines.

    1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard; the values in inch-pound units are provided as information only and are not exact equivalents.

    1.4 The following safety hazards caveat pertains only to the test methods described in this specification: This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, 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.
