Low Temperature Bend Test


Test ID  
M-039

   
Description  
Fabrics coated with rubber or rubber-like materials display increased stiffening when exposed to decreasing ambient temperatures.  This test method is a simple pass/fail procedure whereby material flexibility at a specified low temperature can be determined.  Failure is indicative of unacceptability of the coated fabric for use at that temperature.    
Standards  
ASTM D2136  
Replicates (# of times this test is repeated)  
3  
Samples  
1 - thin sheets or film [details]

   

Application
 
Data is used to predict behavior of materials in low temperature flex situations.
