Description / Abstract:

This specification covers polyolefin monofilament yarn materials, and test methods for standard polyolefin monofilaments. While designed primarily for testing standard polyolefin monofilaments, many of the procedures can be used, with little or no modification, for other polyolefin monofilaments. However, testing on non-standard polyolefin monofilaments should be conducted with caution. See 3.1 for a definition of standard polyolefin monofilament.

Only on condition that interlaboratory precision data are available for the specific procedure is any test method described, or referenced in this specification, recommended for acceptance testing of commercial shipments of polyolefin monofilaments.

The specification for polyolefin raw materials appears in Section 4.

The test methods for individual properties appear in the following sections:

Property                                           Section

Breaking Force                                    10

Breaking Tenacity                                10

Elongation                                          10

Gloss                                                 13

Hot Water Shrinkage                           14

Initial Modulus                                    10

Polyolefin-Material Cleanliness             17

Resistance to Ultraviolet Radiation        15

Stability to Thermal Oxidation              16

Tensile Properties                               10

Thickness                                          12

Width                                                11

Yarn Number                                      9

NOTE 1—In most instances, the suitability of these procedures for polymeric yarns in general, and polyolefin monofilaments in particular, is already accepted in commercial transactions (see 6.1).

The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard; the values in English units are provided as information only and are not exact equivalents.

The following safety hazards caveat pertains only to the test methods described in this specification: This standard may involve hazardous materials, operations, and equipment. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
