4 Principle
A test piece is extended at a specified rate until the forces reach a predetermined value or until the test piece breaks.
5 Apparatus
5.1 Tensile testing machine, with:
a) a force range appropriate to the specimen under test;
b) a means of recording the force to an accuracy of at least 2 % as specified by Class 2 of ISO 7500-1;
c) a uniform speed of separation of the jaws of 100 mm/mm ± 20 mm/mm;
d) a means of recording the force, for example as an elongation curve;
5.2 A means of determining the elongation of the test piece, either by monitoring the separation of the jaws or by sensors which monitor the separation of two fixed points on the test piece.
5.3 Thickness gauge, as specified in ISO 2589.
5.4 Press knives, as specified in ISo 2419, capable of cutting a standard or large size test piece as shown in Figure 1 to the dimensions given in Table 1.ISO 3376 pdf free download.
