Tensile Test of Various Plastic Materials

Tensile tests are widely used to evaluate plastic materials, and the results are used as indices for new materials development and for implementing quality control. Items evaluated as tensile characteristics of plastic materials include the tensile modulus, strength, and tensile break strain. In this Data Sheet, the tensile modulus of polypropylene (PP), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), and polycarbonate (PC) specimens (dumbbell shaped and cut types) was calculated based on displacement data acquired using an extensometer. The strength and tensile break strain for the respective plastic materials are then determined from the test force values and crosshead travel distances detected with the tester.
