Note: In addition to the standard stress crack
test, a modified version of ASTM D 1693 to evaluate tubing quality is also performed. Sections of tubing are bent to induce severe stress in the tubing wall and then submerged in a 10% solution of lgepal (C0630). The samples and solution are placed in a controlled temperature environment at 50°C. Samples must exhibit no cracking or crazing throughout the 10 day duration of the test to be considered satisfactory for extended use.
