Over deze norm
This part of ISO 3673 specifies the methods of preparation of test specimens and the test methods to be used in determining the properties of epoxy resins. Requirements for handling test material and for conditioning both the test material before moulding and the specimens before testing are given. Properties of crosslinked epoxy resins have been selected from the general test methods in ISO 10350-1:1998. Other test methods in wide use with, or of particular significance to, epoxy resins, particularly properties useful for the processing of non-crosslinked epoxy resins, are also included in this part of ISO 3673. In order to obtain reproducible and comparable test results, it is necessary to use the test methods, sample preparation and conditioning, and specimen dimensions specified herein. Values determined will not necessarily be identical to those obtained using test specimens of different dimensions or prepared using different procedures. Other standards exist concerning the determination of properties and preparation of test specimens for epoxybased products, to which reference will be made, if required.
