ASTM D5416 Standard Test Method for Evaluating Abrasion Resistance of Stretch Wrap Films by Vibration Testing
The scope of ASTM D5416 testing compares the abrasion resistance of similar types of stretch wrap films. The ASTM D5416 test is intended to provide only a comparative procedure for evaluating unknown films against a standard or control film whose performance has been defined as adequate in actual field conditions.
ASTM D5416 testing leaves open to the discretion of the user several key factors, including film wrap method, abrasion surfaces, and definition of failure, so that it can be tailored to an individual user’s distribution parameters.
When testing, an ASTM D5416 test lab simulates, in an accelerated mode, the abrasion that an outer wrapping of film might encounter in a typical shipping and distribution environment.
