ASTM D412 is a test standard for testing the tensile stress-strain properties of thermoset rubbers and thermoplastic elastomers. The standard is divided into to test methods. Method A is used for evaluating the tension properties of dumbbell type samples and Method B covers procedures to evaluate the tension properties of flat ring type samples. Calculations derived from ASTM D412 include tensile stress, tensile stress at a given elongation, tensile strength, yield point and ultimate elongation.
Before conducting ASTM D412, it is important to read the entire specification. Standards can be obtained from appropriate standard authorities.
