    Revision of D882 - 10 Standard Test Method for Tensile Properties of Thin Plastic Sheeting

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: D882 - 12

    Developed by Subcommittee: D20.19 | Committee D20 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    A Precision and Bias Interlaboratory Study is being performed to update the tables in the test standard by testing 3 sets of polyethylene films. High Density Polyethylene, Low Density Polyethylene, and Linear Low Density Polyethylene films. Samples are ready to be sent out when a total of at least 8 laboratories are chosen to participate in the study.
