This document specifies the methods of preparation of test specimens and the test methods to be used in determining the properties of styrene-acrylonitrile (SAN) moulding and extrusion materials. It gives the requirements for handling the test material and for conditioning both the test material before moulding and the specimens before testing.
This document gives procedures and conditions for the preparation of test specimens and procedures for measuring properties of the materials from which these specimens are made. It lists properties and test methods which are suitable and necessary to characterize SAN moulding and extrusion materials.
The properties have been selected from the general test methods in ISO 10350-1. Other test methods in wide use for, or of particular significance to, these moulding and extrusion materials are also included in this document, as are the designatory properties specified in ISO 19064-1.
The methods of specimen preparation and conditioning, the specimen dimensions and the test procedures specified in this document are used in order to obtain reproducible and comparable test results. Values determined are not always identical to those obtained using specimens of different dimensions or prepared using different procedures.
