Covers testing of mechanical properties of stretch wrapping films as they have been applied by a stretch wrapper to a unit load or test structure. This guide may be applied to handwrapping or to machine wrapping applications. These tests may be applied to real-world or field testing or may be applied to theoretical or laboratory testing. This testing does not cover the testing of mechanical properties independent of application by stretch wrapper. These tests are not intended to be applied to agricultural stretch wrapping films and its application.

All procedures from ASTM D 4649-03 Annex are being moved to this standard, reviewed, updated, and additional performance tests have been added in order to make them official tests and not simply supplemental information. Several new tests are being added in addition to those found in D4649 annex A1.
The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.Back to Top
