Plastic Strength

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.)
