Wholesale Vinyl Fence 201-377-0370

All Vinyl Fence from BuyVinylFence.com is ASTM F964-09 Compliant

ASTM F964-09 is considered the “end all, beat all” testing specification for Vinyl fence. The purpose of this specification is to establish a recognized standard of quality for exterior Vinyl profiles for use in assembling agricultural, commercial, and residential fencing and railing. This specification covers Illusions® Vinyl Fence sections and the EverStrong Profiles used to fabricate them.

Illusions® Vinyl Fence Products are manufactured to meet cell Class 1–32333–3 as defined in Specification D4216. Illusions® compounds have higher cell classification because one or more properties are superior to those used in standard acceptable compounds.

Color/Consistency Testing – The PVC compound in extruded section shall maintain uniform color and be free of any visual surface or structural changes, such as peeling, chipping, cracking, flaking, or pitting after weathering in hot, dry climates such as Phoenix, AZ; a hot humid climate, such as Miami, FL; and a temperate northern climate, when tested in accordance with ASTM Performance Weathering Requirements.

Weathering Testing – The PVC compound shall have a minimum impact resistance of 0.6 in.-lb/mil (2670 J/m) after weathering in a hot, dry climate such as Phoenix, AZ; a hot, humid climate, such as Miami, FL; and a temperate northern climate, when tested in accordance with ASTM Performance Weathering Requirements.

Scope:


ASTM F964-13 is considered the “end
all, beat all” testing specification for vinyl
fence. The purpose of this specification
is to establish a recognized standard of
quality for exterior vinyl profiles for use in
assembling agricultural, commercial, and
residential fencing and railing. This specifi-
cation covers Illusions Vinyl Fence sections
and the EverStrong Profiles used to fabri-
cate them.
Materials
Illusions
Vinyl Fence Products are manu-
factured using Rigid Poly Vinyl Chloride
(PVC) compounds for exterior-profile extru-
sions that meet the requirements of ASTM
Specification D4216.
Manufacture
Illusions
Vinyl Fence Products are manu-
factured to meet cell Class 3–30233–23 as
defined in Specification D4216.
Illusions
compounds have higher cell classification
because one or more properties are supe-
rior to those used in standard acceptable
compounds.
Color/Consistency Testing – The PVC com-
pound in extruded section shall maintain
uniform color and be free of any visual
surface or structural changes, such as peel-
ing, chipping, cracking, flaking, or pitting
after weathering at intervals of six months
and one year for white and for six months,
one year, and two years for all other colors
in hot, dry climate such as Phoenix, AZ; a
hot humid climate, such as Miami, FL; and
a temperate northern climate, when tested
in accordance with ASTM Performance
Weathering Requirements (TABLE 1).
Weathering Testing – The PVC compound
shall have a minimum impact resistance
of 0.6 in.-lb/mil (2670 J/m) after weather
-
ing six months and one year in a hot, dry
climate such as Phoenix, AZ; a hot, humid
climate, such as Miami, FL; and a temperate
northern climate, when tested in accor
-
dance with ASTM Performance Weathering
Requirements. The PVC compound shall
have successfully met the weathering require-
ments prescribed for six months at each
climatic testing site prior to use in produc-
tion of exterior-profile extrusions, when test-
ed in accordance with ASTM Performance
Weathering Requirements
