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. Individual methods outline specific guidelines as to time to test after molding.

Historical Version s asm view previous versions d1401 standard. Please call for more information on these special materials. Co-Polymer Polypropylene High-impact grade material which involves the additional copolymerization of propylene and ethylene in a secondary reactor.

All grades are self-extinguishing. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. Tests shall be conducted on each of the specimens to determine the required physical and mechanical properties of the materials. See individual methods for more information.

Light grey standard with additional colors available upon request. Controlled laboratory atmosphere is required. This specification defines pertinent properties, test methods, parameters and sample preparation for the evaluation of polypropylene for molding and extrusion.

ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date. 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. Dark grey standard with additional colors available upon request.


It is the responsibility of the supplier and the buyer of recycled, reconstituted, and reground materials to ensure compliance.

Standard Specification for Polypropylene and Extrusion Materials

Excellent resistance to acids and alkaline solutions. Available in black pipe grade resin PE which meets NSF standard 14 and 61 for potable water applications. Excellent chemical resistance over a wide thermal range. The specimens for the various materials shall conform to the following requirements: Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.

Injection molding of test specimens is required for all tests outlined except heat stability testing. Polymers consist of homopolymer, copolymers, and elastomer compounded with or without the addition of impact modifiers, for example, ethylene-propylene rubber, polyisobutylene rubber, and butyl rubber, colorants, stabilizers, lubricants, or reinforcements.

ASTM D4101 – 17

Typically, different materials have unique requirements related to the generation of the specific properties. If other requirements are necessary to identify particular characteristics important to specific applications, these shall be designated by using the suffixes given in Section 1.

Standards can be obtained from appropriate standards authorities. This polymer offers extremely low permeability to liquids, gases, and vapors. The properties included in this classification system are those required to identify the compositions covered. This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard. End users, engineers, sellers, and buyers of polypropylene would in turn utilize the callout to specify a material for their particular application.

PFA is also a suitable material for the highest ultra-pure requirements. 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.


Superior chemical and heat resistance that allows continual operating temperatures up to ‘F. Excellent chemical resistance to a broad range of acids, alkalis and most organic solvents up to ‘F.

Color is light gray. ECTFE has excellent chemical and mechanical properties, impact strength, and a broad service use temperature. Certain processes, such as adhesion and FRP reinforcement can significantly reduce the permissible temperature limits.

Standard Specification for Polypropylene and Extrusion Materials.

It is extremely tough, resistant to UV light and self-extinguishing. Specimen Preparation is based on classification of basic composition. Excellent chemical resistance to both acid and alkai solutions for temperatures up to maximum of ‘F.

Increased impact resistance over homopolymer polyproplene down to 0’F. Extruded, stress free, consistently flat material. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard Translated Version s: Additional test methods are also called out.
