5 Test methods
5.1 Conditioning and test conditions
Dry the test samples for at least 24 h in an atmosphere of (50 ± 5) °C and less than 20 % relative humidity. Then condition these test samples in an atmosphere of (23 ± 2) °C and (50 ± 2) % relative humidity for at least 72 h. Then start testing these samples at a temperature of (23 ± 5) °C within 10 mm.
5.2 Procedure
5.2.1 General
Verify the requirements according to and 4.1.4 by visual and tactile examination.
Verify the requirements according to 4.1.2 by measuring with the harness on the dummy loaded in accordance with,, or For the width in 4.1.2 the measurements shall be made in three locations per dimension.
5.2.2 Threads
Check by visual examination that the requirements specified in 4.1.3 are met.BS EN 12277 pdf download.
