    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Provides a method for specifying the composition and property requirements of ethylene homopolymers and ethylene copolymers having a maximum content of other 1-olefin monomers of less than 50%. Applies to materials ready for normal use in the form of powder, granules and to materials unmodified by colourants, additives, fillers, etc. Does not apply to masterbatches or to ethylene-propylene copolymer. Covers definition, preparation of test specimens, conditioning of test specimens, reporting of test data, ethylene homopolymer and copolymer materials having a maximum content of 1-olefin monomers of less than 50% and non-olefinic monomers with functional groups up to a maximum of 3% and polyethylene materials for British Government Service contracts.
