It is extremely tough, resistant to UV light and self-extinguishing. Specimen Preparation is based on classification of basic composition. Additional test methods are also called out. See individual methods for more information.

ASTM D4101 – 17

Light grey standard with additional colors available upon request. Dark grey standard with additional colors available upon request. Co-Polymer Polypropylene High-impact grade material which involves the additional copolymerization of propylene and ethylene in a secondary reactor.

D Test Method for Plastics: Excellent chemical resistance to a broad range of acids, alkalis and most organic solvents up to ‘F. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application.

This specification defines pertinent properties, test methods, parameters and sample preparation for the evaluation of polypropylene for molding and extrusion.

Standard Specification for Polypropylene and Extrusion Materials. Superior chemical and heat resistance that allows continual operating temperatures up to ‘F.

PFA is also a suitable material for the highest ultra-pure requirements. Controlled laboratory atmosphere is required. Injection molding of test specimens is required for all tests outlined except heat stability testing. End users, engineers, sellers, and buyers of polypropylene would in turn utilize the callout to specify a material for their particular application.

Excellent resistance to acids and alkaline solutions. Ideal material for tank construction. All grades are self-extinguishing. Following the requirements of this specification assures consistent characterization and valid comparisons of polypropylenes.


Exceptional tensile strength and stiffness lends this material to almost any fabrication. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. Excellent chemical resistance over a wide thermal range.

Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.

Due to copyright restrictions, we are not able to provide copies of standards. Excellent chemical resistance to both acid and alkai solutions for temperatures up to maximum of ‘F. If other requirements s4101 necessary to identify particular characteristics important to specific applications, these shall be designated by using the suffixes given in Section 1.

Excellent chemical resistance, frictional resistance, and strength up to ‘F. D101 specimens for the various materials shall conform to the following requirements: Link to Active This link will always route to atm current Active version of the standard. This specification covers polypropylene materials, suitable for injection molding and extrusion, that include unreinforced polypropylene with natural color only, unfilled and unreinforced polypropylene, calcium carbonate filled polypropylene, glass reinforced polypropylene, polypropylene copolymers, and talc filled polypropylene.

Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard Translated Version s: Certain processes, such as adhesion and FRP reinforcement can significantly reduce the permissible temperature limits.

Polymers consist of homopolymer, copolymers, and elastomer compounded with or without the addition of impact modifiers, for example, ethylene-propylene rubber, polyisobutylene rubber, and asfm rubber, colorants, stabilizers, lubricants, or reinforcements.

The properties included in this classification system are those required to identify the compositions covered. Fabric-Backed Dual-Laminate and Specialty Materials We can also manufacture equipment fabricated from dual-laminate materials which combine the excellent chemical resistance of thermoplastics with the superb mechanical strength of FRP construction. Color is light gray. Extruded, stress free, consistently flat material. No other units of measurement are included in this standard. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use.


This polymer offers extremely low permeability to liquids, gases, and vapors. Typically, different materials have unique requirements related to the generation of astk specific properties. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

Standards can be obtained from appropriate standards authorities.

Standard Specification for Polypropylene Injection and Extrusion Materials

asstm Please call for more information on these special materials. This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. ECTFE has excellent chemical and mechanical properties, impact strength, and a broad service use temperature. High impact properties sstm this material give it superior structural integrity over Type I PVC in larger industrial applications. Increased impact resistance over homopolymer polyproplene down to 0’F.

The proportions of recycled, reconstituted, and reground material used, as well as the nature and the amount of any contaminant, cannot be practically covered in this classification system.

Tests shall be d411 on each of the specimens to determine the required physical and mechanical properties of the materials. Available in black pipe grade resin PE which meets NSF standard 14 and 61 for potable water applications. Individual methods outline specific guidelines as to time to test after molding. Polymers consist of homopolymer, copolymers, and elastomer compounded with or without the addition of impact modifiers ethylene-propylene rubber, polyisobutylene rubber, and butyl rubbercolorants, stabilizers, lubricants, or reinforcements.
