ASTM C120 flexure test methods are useful in indicating the differences in flexure (breaking load, modulus of rupture, modulus of elasticity) between various slates by means of flexure tests. ASTM C120 test methods also provide one element in the comparison of slates. The unit values from ASTM C120 flexure tests are stated in either SI units or inch-pound units and are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system within ASTM C120 may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the ASTM C120 standard.
