The American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) has developed a Proficiency Testing Program for Plastic Film Testing, supported by the ASTM Committee D20 on Plastics.

The program includes strengthening of following test methods:

  • Tensile properties
  • Propagation tear resistance (pendulum)
  • Haze
  • Dart drop impact
  • Tear resistance (graves tear)
  • Gloss
  • COF
  • Puncture-propagation tear resistance

The program will assist laboratories in:

  •  Monitoring strengths and weaknesses
