ASTM D – Tensile Properties of Yarns by the Single Strand Method. Scope: This test is used to determine the Breaking Force and Elongation of yarns. This standard is issued under the fixed designation D ; the number 1 This test method is under the jurisdiction of ASTM Committee D13 on Textiles. ASTM D is by far the most common specification that is followed for determining the breaking strength, elongation, and energy of single strand textiles.

Special methods for testing yarns made from specific fibers; namely, glass, flax, hemp, ramie, and kraft paper and for specific products; namely, tire cords and rope, have been published: Note dd2256 results obtained when testing oven-dried specimens at standard temperature will d226 necessarily agree with the results obtained when testing oven-dried yarns at high temperatures.

Pneumatic cord and yarn grips provide a convenient method for clamping fiber, cord, yarns and fine wires to reduce the problem associated with testing these materials. Initial modulus is a measure of the resistance of the yarn to extension at forces below the yield point.

Test Methods Dand Specification D A specially designed horn with a smooth finish and a contoured surface with a graduated cam allows for easy loading and a stress reduced clamping area on the specimen.

Contact Us View Accessories Catalog. The CRE-type tester is the preferred tension testing machine. They are designed with standard and optional features that increase testing efficiency and improve the testing experience for the operator. Discover simpler and smarter testing with features such as pre-loaded test methods, QuickTest in seconds, enhanced data exporting: Bluehill Universal Awtm is built from the ground-up for touch interaction and an intuitive user experience.


The agreement is not necessarily good, however, between CRE or CRT tension testing machines on the one hand and CRL tension testing machines on the other even when they are all operated at the same time-to-break.

The breaking toughness is a measure of the work necessary to break the yarn. These alternative rates may be used only by agreement between the parties concerned or when required in an applicable aatm specification. Specimen clamping may be modified as required at the discretion of the individual laboratory providing a representative force-elongation curve is obtained.

The difference in breaking force between tests at 17 and 23 s will usually not exceed 1. Email addresses can only contain letters, numbers and the following special characters: The test dat can be used to calculate breaking tenacity, initial modulus, chord modulus, and breaking toughness.

The challenges of testing to this standard are: Reporting calculations in compliance with the standard Specimen gripping Instron’s Solution: We use cookies to improve your browsing experience. Onsite Training At Your Facility. Low-temperature tests are made on coated yarns used in the manufacture of materials used in outdoor applications, such as screening fabrics.

The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. When tensile atm are performed at a fixed time-to-break, then reasonable agreement in breaking force has generally been found to exist between CRT and CRE tension testing machines. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.

Email addresses must contain the symbol. For directions covering the determination of breaking force of yarn by the skein method refer to Test Method D Force-elongation curves can be converted to stress-strain curves if the force is converted to unit stress, such as to centinewtons per tex, or pounds per square inch, or pascals, or grams-force per tex, or grams-force per denier, and the elongation is based on change per unit length.

Most yarns can be tested by this test method some modification of clamping techniques may be necessary for a given yarn depending upon its structure and composition. Software for Series Systems.

This allows hands-free grip operation enabling the specimen to be held with both hands, for easy loading. The clamping mechanism can be activated either automatically or through a foot switch.

A straight, B knotted, and C looped form. Wet tests are made on flax yarns to detect adulteration by failure to show a gain in breaking force. Atm prevent slippage in the clamps or damage as a result of being gripped in the clamps, special clamping adaptations may be necessary with high modulus yarns made from fibers such as glass or extended chain polyolefin.
