Due to the very large number of tests offered, descriptions of those most commonly requested have been gathered into the following groups:

ASTM D885 – Tensile Properties of Tire Cords, Tire Cord Fabrics, and Industrial Filament Yarns

To request a quotation for any test email for a prompt reply

ASTM D885 covers the testing of industrial filament yards made from manufactured organic-base fibers, cords twisted from those yarns, fabrics woven from those cords and products made specifically for the use in the manufacturing of pneumatic tires.

Specimens are conditioned or oven-dried and then clamped in a tensile testing machine and stretched or loaded until broken. Breaking force, elongation and force at specified elongation (FASE) are determined directly. Modulus and work-to-break are calculated from a force-elongation curve.

Please email or call (304) 547-5800 for information regarding test procedures, results, specimen information, pricing or any other ASTM D885 questions you may have.
