End users, engineers, sellers, and buyers of polypropylene would in turn utilize the callout to specify a material for their particular application.

Typically, different materials have unique requirements c4101 to the generation of the specific properties. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. To request a quote for this test or others Click Here. Following the requirements of this specification assures consistent characterization and valid comparisons of polypropylenes.

Tests shall be conducted on each of the specimens to determine the required physical and mechanical properties of the materials.

Specimen Preparation is based on classification of basic composition. This specification defines pertinent properties, test methods, parameters and sample preparation for the evaluation of polypropylene for molding and extrusion.

Standard Specification for Polypropylene and Extrusion Materials

Ideal material for tank construction. Light grey standard with additional colors available upon request. Polymers consist of homopolymer, copolymers, and elastomer compounded with or without the addition of impact modifiers ethylene-propylene rubber, polyisobutylene rubber, and butyl rubbercolorants, stabilizers, lubricants, or reinforcements. Exceptional tensile strength and stiffness lends this material ashm almost any fabrication.

Excellent chemical resistance to a broad range of acids, alkalis and most organic solvents up to ‘F. Extruded, stress free, consistently flat material.

See individual methods for more information. Additional test methods are also called out. High impact properties of this material give it superior structural integrity over Type I PVC in larger industrial applications.


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. The properties included in this classification system are those required to identify the compositions covered.

This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard.

Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. This specification covers polypropylene materials, suitable for injection molding and extrusion, that include unreinforced polypropylene with natural color only, unfilled and unreinforced polypropylene, calcium carbonate filled polypropylene, glass reinforced polypropylene, polypropylene copolymers, and talc filled polypropylene.

Please call for more information on these special materials. Controlled laboratory atmosphere is required. Polymers atsm of homopolymer, copolymers, and elastomer compounded with or without the addition of impact modifiers, for example, ethylene-propylene rubber, polyisobutylene rubber, and butyl rubber, colorants, adtm, lubricants, or reinforcements.

ECTFE has excellent chemical and mechanical properties, impact strength, and a broad service use temperature. Excellent resistance to acids and alkaline solutions. If other requirements are necessary to identify particular characteristics important to specific applications, these shall be designated by using wstm suffixes given in Section 1. D Test Method for Plastics: Available in black pipe grade resin PE which meets NSF standard 14 and 61 for potable water applications.

Xstm chemical resistance, frictional resistance, and strength up to ‘F. Fabric-Backed Dual-Laminate and Specialty Materials We can also manufacture equipment fabricated from dual-laminate materials which combine the ast chemical resistance of thermoplastics with the superb mechanical strength of FRP construction.

All grades are self-extinguishing. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are adtm, complete or up to date. Injection molding of test specimens is required for all tests outlined except heat stability testing. Individual methods outline specific guidelines as to time to test after molding. It is extremely tough, resistant to UV light and self-extinguishing.


Color is light gray.

No other units of measurement are included in this standard. Due to copyright restrictions, we are not able to provide copies of standards. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard Translated Version s: Excellent chemical resistance to both acid and alkai solutions for temperatures up to maximum of ‘F. Increased impact resistance over homopolymer polyproplene down to 0’F.

It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its d44101 and application. Standards can be obtained from appropriate standards authorities.

Dark grey standard with additional colors available upon request. The proportions of recycled, reconstituted, and reground material used, as well as the nature asfm the amount of any contaminant, cannot be practically covered in this classification system.

Co-Polymer Polypropylene High-impact grade material which involves the additional copolymerization of propylene and ethylene in a secondary reactor. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard.

Excellent chemical resistance over a wide thermal range. PFA is also a suitable material for the highest ultra-pure requirements. Superior chemical and heat resistance that allows continual operating temperatures up to ‘F. It is the responsibility of the supplier and the buyer of recycled, reconstituted, and reground materials to ensure compliance. Standard Specification for Polypropylene and Extrusion Materials.
