ASTM D3039

Full Name

ASTM D3039 – Standard Test Method for Tensile Properties of Polymer Matrix Composite Materials


This test method determines the in-plane tensile properties of polymer matrix composite materials reinforced by high-modulus fibers.

The composite material forms are limited to continuous fiber or discontinuous fiber-reinforced composites in which the laminate is balanced and symmetric with respect to the test direction.
