Slow-Rate Penetration Test

This test method permits flexible barrier films and laminates to be characterized for slow rate penetration resistance to a driven probe. The test is performed at room temperature by applying a biaxial stress at a single test velocity on the material until perforation occurs. The force, energy, and elongation to perforation are then determined.
