Test Method: SATRA TM137
Tensile properties of plastics and rubbers
This method is intended to determine the tensile properties of a material. The method is applicable to all types of polymeric material and in particular footwear soling materials or suitable material cut from finished shoes.
A dumb-bell shaped test specimen of standard thickness is gradually stretched, by a tensile testing machine, until it fails. The tensile strength and extension at break of the specimen are both determined. If required, the tensile stress at a predefined extension may also be determined.
