ASTM WK82320

New Test Method for Additive Manufacturing -- Feedstock Materials -- Tensile Testing Method for Filaments used in Material Extrusion

1. Scope

The test method covers the determination of the tensile properties, specifically tensile strength and elongation to failure, of thermoplastic based filaments used in the material extrusion based additive manufacturing processes.


Fusion deposition


Material extrusion based AM processes have been widely used. However, no standard is available for determining the tensile properties of the filaments used in those AM processes.

The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
