    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Specifies five test methods for rigid cellular products of polymeric origin which may not be suitable for cellular products of inorganic origin. Includes sections on measurement of dimensions, determination of apparent density, compression test, cross-breaking strength test, dimensional stability test and determination of compressive modulus. Illustrates test specimen arrangement and loading for cross-breaking strength test, test specimens for dimensional stability tests and a tangent drawn to the force/compression curve to determine the compressive modulus.
