ASTM D882 Testing Services
Applied Technical Services performs ASTM D882 testing: the standard testing method for evaluating thin plastic sheeting’s tensile properties. Thin plastic sheeting and films have many common uses, including consumer goods and food packaging. Plastic manufacturers and packaging companies ensure that the sheeting and film meet necessary expectations by attaining accurate mechanical profiles of the materials. The ASTM D882 tensile testing standard helps clients determine some of a sample’s mechanical properties.
The D882 Standard
ASTM D882 covers tensile testing for plastics in a thin film or sheet form. Testing involves pulling samples to failure while recording material data. This test measures several tensile properties, such as:
This testing data provides valuable material characterization information for clients with quality control, material specification, and engineering design purposes.
