    Abstract

    This specification covers requirements and methods of test for the material, dimensions, and workmanship, and the properties of extruded, compression molded, and injection molded PAEK sheet, plate, rod, and tubular bar manufactured from PAEK. The type of PAEK extruded, compression molded, and injection molded product may be categorized by type, grade and class depending on resin and filler compositions. Every type of PAEK shape may be categorized into one of several grades as follows: Grade 1 (general purpose) which is extruded, compression molded or injection molded product made using only 100% virgin PAEK resin and Grade 2 (recycle grade) which is extruded, compression molded or injection molded product made using any amount up to 100% of recycled thermoplastic PAEK. The type, class and grade is further differentiated based on dimensional stability. Different tests shall be conducted in order to determine the following properties of PAEK: tensile stress at break, elongation at break, tensile modulus, dimensional stability, lengthwise camber and widthwise bow, squareness, flexural modulus, and Izod impact.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers requirements and methods of test for the material, dimensions, and workmanship, and the properties of extruded, compression molded, and injection molded PAEK sheet, plate, rod, and tubular bar manufactured from PAEK.

    1.2 The properties included in this specification are those required for the compositions covered. Requirements necessary to identify particular characteristics important to specialized applications are described by using the classification system given in Section 4.

    1.3 This specification allows the use of key clad plastics (see Section 4).

    1.4 The values are stated in inch-pound units and are regarded as the standard in all property and dimensional tables. For reference purposes, SI units are also included in Table 1.

    1.5 The following precautionary caveat pertains only to the test method portion Section 11, of this specification. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

    Note 1: There is no known ISO equivalent to this standard.

    1.6 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
