ASTM D5748 determines the resistance of a stretch wrap film to the penetration of a probe at a standard low rate, a single test velocity. ASTM D5748 imparts a biaxial stress that is representative of the type of stress encountered in many product end-use applications.

ASTM D5748

ASTM D5748 determines the following properties for stretch wrap film:

  • maximum force
  • force at break
  • penetration distance
  • energy to break

Puncture resistance is very important in end-use performance of stretch wrap film used in consumer and industrial product applications. Puncture resistance is a measure of the energy-absorbing ability of a stretch wrap film in resisting a protrusion.
