ISO 8256:1990


Specifies two methods for the determination of the energy required to rupture test specimens of plastics under a specified tensile-impact velocity. The tests can be described as tensile tests at comparatively high rates of straining. These methods are applicable to specimens prepared from moulding materials or to specimens taken from finished or semi-finished products. These methods are not suitable for use as a source of data for design calculations on components.
