The required calculations for this standard consist of peak force to break, energy to break, and probe penetration at the first peak
The ASTM F1306 specifies the test conditions for determining the characterization of flexible barrier films and laminates for slow rate penetration resistance to a driven probe at room temperature. The standard recommends a 3.2 mm diameter hemispherical probe and a sample test diameter of 34.9 mm.
The ability to characterize penetration resistance is critical for products and applications that depend on certain levels of barrier protection. Suitable machines for testing films and laminates to this standard include QUASAR 2,5 / 5 / 10 / 25 with penetration fixture in compliance with the recommended fixture specifications described in the standard. Additional burst fixtures are also available.
We recommend reviewing ASTM F1306 to fully understand needs and requirements
