Tensile Tests of Plastic Materials at Low Temperatures (-40 °C)

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 break strain. In this Data Sheet, the tensile modulus of polypropylene (PP) and polyvinyl chloride (PVC) specimens (dumbbell shaped and cut types) was calculated based on displacement data acquired using an extensometer at a low temperature of -40 °C. In addition, the strength and break strain for the respective plastic materials were also evaluated.
