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


None Provided


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.
