The loads required for 150 % elongation shall be measured. The corresponding stresses shall
be calculated by dividing the loads measured by the cross-sectional areas of the unstretched
test pieces. The ratios of the stresses to strains shall be determined to obtain the elastic
moduli at 150 % elongation.
The elastic modulus shall be the median value.
18.19.2 Requirements
The results of the test shall comply with the requirements of Table 17.
18.20 Shrinkage test for PE oversheaths
