The ISO 10350 series identifies specific test procedures for the acquisition and presentation of comparable data for certain basic properties of plastics. In general, each property is specified by a single experimental value, although in certain cases properties are represented by two values obtained under different test conditions. The properties included are those presented conventionally in manufacturers' data sheets. ISO 10350-1 applies predominantly to unreinforced and reinforced thermoplastic and thermosetting materials that may be injection- or compression-moulded or prepared as sheets of specified thickness. For the purposes of ISO 10350-1, long-fibre-reinforced plastics are considered to have fibre lengths greater than 7,5 mm prior to moulding.
NOTE ISO 10350-2 deals specifically with long- or continuous-fibre-reinforced plastics.
