The ASTM C1147 standard is used to prepare and evaluate the joints between weldable grades of thermoplastics which may be backed or unbacked up to two inches (50mm) in thickness. Product quality and performance for welded thermoplastics is highly dependent on the welder, so a great deal of care should be taken to ensure the the correct procedures are being followed when preparing specimens.
