This document specifies a method for determining the tensile properties of pipes made of unplasticized poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC-U), oriented unplasticized poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC-O), chlorinated poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC-C) and high-impact poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC-HI, PVC-M or PVC-A), and in particular the following properties:
— the stress at yield and stress at break;
— the elongation at break.
NOTE The general method of test for the determination of the tensile properties of thermoplastics pipes is given in ISO 6259‑1.
This document also gives, for information purposes only, the corresponding basic specifications in Annexes A, B, C and D.
