Plastics -- Film and sheeting -- Determination of tear resistance -- Part 1: Trouser tear method
This standard has been revised by ISO 6383-1:2015
Specifies a method of determing the tear resistance of plastic film or sheet less than 1 mm thick, tested under defined conditions. A rectangular test specimen having a longitudinal slit extending over its half length is subjected to a tensile test on the "trouser legs" formed by the slit. The average force required to tear the specimen completely along its length is used to calculate the tear resistance in N/mm.
