ASTM D1693

Introducing ASTM D1693 - Industrial Physics

ASTM D1693 is a global ASTM standard test method for measuring environmental stress-cracking in ethylene plastics. 

Under certain conditions of stress and in the presence of environments such as soaps, wetting agents, oils, or detergents, ethylene plastics may exhibit mechanical failure by cracking. Environmental stress-cracking is a property that’s dependent upon the nature and level of the stresses the ethylene has endured and on the thermal history of the specimen. 

Cracking stress-crack testing machines  

Using a test reagent, the stress-cracking test results will show what may be expected from a wide variety of surface-active agents, soaps, and organic substances that don’t become absorbed by the polymer. 

When the material is under certain conditions of stress, these reagents can accelerate the cracking process. This is one of the most common causes of unexpected brittle failure of polymers. 

ASTM D1693 testing equipment  

So, how can Industrial Physics improve your ASTM D1693 testing?  

Ray-Ran environmental stress cracking chamber  

Determine the susceptibility of ethylene plastics to environmental stress-cracking with this accurate device.   

Our environmental stress-cracking test machine subjects your test samples to bending stress then exposes them to different environments such as soaps, wetting agents, detergents and acids. This will show if they exhibit any mechanical defects by cracking. 

Designed for ASTM D1693 compliance, the machine is cost-effective and simple to use. It comes with electronic digital temperature control, a temperature bath and tooling accessories.
