ASTM WK62684

    Revision of F1473 - 18 Standard Test Method for Notch Tensile Test to Measure the Resistance to Slow Crack Growth of Polyethylene Pipes and Resins

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: F1473 - 18

    The tolerances for sample preparation and testing for F1473 have shown to be wide enough that inter-lab experiment data often do not correspond/agree with each other when comparing the same samples. Instrument vibration, temperature probe placement, and temperature tolerances are fields of interest within the standard to be revised.
