Specification ASTM D includes test methods for covering a wide range of mechanical properties of coated fabrics. ASTM D is used to ensure the quality of rubber-coated fabrics including tarpaulins, rainwear, outdoor clothing, and similar products. ASTM D features . 9 Sep This standard is issued under the fixed designation D ; the 1 These test methods are under the jurisdiction of ASTM Committee D11 on.

Testing Procedure First asstm must place the specimen symmetrically on the base plate of your compression tester or universal testing machine. We recommend that you purchase the official F751 standard to achieve the best results. The length may be measured by a ruler or with the drum method adtm the length data is measured off a dial or indicator. A coated fabric is a material that has at least one layer of a textile and one layer of a polymeric substance.

The width can also be measured with a ruler or more accurate device. This is a short list of the grips and fixtures required for each of these tests:. Low Temperature Impact Test. Elongation The elongation is typically measured by the crosshead of the UTM, however extensometers can be used to acquire direct strain data from the specimen. Record the force required to astn or cut the specimen.

Specimens should be in rectangle shapes and should be 50mm W X mm L with the seam horizontally across the center. Adhesion Coating to Fabrics.

ASTM D – 06() Standard Test Methods for Coated Fabrics

D Tearing Strength Tearing strength can be determined by two methods: Tongue Tear Method Same vise grips used for the Breaking Strength test but replaced the 25mm x 25mm front jaws with 25mm tall x 50mm wide jaws so you have a set of four 25mm x 50mm jaws. The vise grip inserts should be 1×3″ HxW. Square samples are put into the chamber for conditioning. Pneumatic actuation allows for quick and simple specimen setup.


This test is characterized by a spherical plunger fixture. Dead Load Seam Strength is similar to the seam strength test. Some of these tests require specialized qstm hydrostatic resistance, blocking, wicking, impact, etc. There are a few types of grip faces that are available including blank, vulcanized rubber, pyramid, or wave.

Testing Procedure First place the specimen symmetrically in the jaws of the grips with the seam centered between the jaws. Use the same specimens as for breaking strength.

ASTM D covers a similar procedure for seam efficiency. This test is applicable to diaphragm material cut from coated fabrics that will be used for automotive and regulator devices. Place the load button on the test specimen with the recessed end down and at least 12 mm from any edge of the specimen. Preparing the Specimens Three specimens should be tested. Five specimens from each of the warp and filling directions should be tested. The elongation is typically measured by the crosshead of the UTM, however extensometers can be used to acquire direct strain data from the specimen.

Blocking Resistance at Elevated Temperatures. Call our fixture engineers today and they can provide you with a specialized fixture just for this test. The seam strength test works great for lapped, lapped and bonded, and sewn seams using the modified grab test method. Elongation Test is done at the same time as the breaking strength test so grips are the same.

ADMET universal testing machines include the straining mechanism item 1 and built in load and elongation recording mechanisms Item 3. We are confident that we have what you are looking for.


Puncture Resistance This fixture is the same as used for the bursting test but the polished steel ball is replaced with a sharp pointed instrument.

The literature recognizes rubber-coated fabrics, however the coverage is not limited to rubber, and extends to similar types of polymer coatings on textiles. Test Procedure First you should mount the test specimen in the ring clamp. Specimens should be rectangular in shape and 75mm X mm in size.

Trapezoidal Tear Same vise grips used for the Tearing Strength test Adhesion Coating to Fabrics Same vise grips but jaws should be 25mm tall x 75mm wide Tack-Tear Resistance This test requires a specialized grip fixture that is used only for this test.

Another test using a puncture fixture. After the sample has been heat aged it is tested using one of the above procedures. The button has space to puncture through the sample. Record the force maximum force as the bursting strength of the specimen.

The specimen is then torn by the fall of a pendulum through the force of gravity. The other method, the Tongue Tear Method is more common and requires a universal testing machine.

Record the force necessary to separate the coating from the backing. Vise Grips are the standard solution for this test, however self-tightening wedge or scissor grips may be used as well as long as the grip face sizes are appropriate. Test Procedure First center the specimen in the machine with one tongue fastened in each clamp Start the machine with a uniform speed of.
