Background

Tensile Strength of Dotmar Engineering Thermoplastics

Background

Engineering thermoplastics vary in their tensile strength. The method for testing the tensile strength of plastics is the same as that of metal; using a “Dog-Bone” test specimen, and recording the yield point.

Things to note when considering Tensile or compressive strength – Temperature, Duration, speed, load and Structural requirements. (Strength reduces as Temperature increases, Strength reduces as duration is extended.)
