Ceramic tiles - Part 4: Determination of modulus of rupture and breaking strength (ISO 10545-4:2004); German version EN ISO 10545-4:2012
Keramische Fliesen und Platten - Teil 4: Bestimmung der Biegefestigkeit und der Bruchlast (ISO 10545-4:2004); Deutsche Fassung EN ISO 10545-4:2012
This part of ISO 10545 specifies a test method for determining the modulus of rupture and breaking strength of all ceramic tiles. The breaking load, breaking strength and modulus of rupture of a tile are determined by applying a force at a specified rate to the centre of the tile, the point of application being in contact with the proper surface of the tile. The test standard is directed at manufacturers and suppliers of ceramic tiles as well as independent test institutes. ISO 13006 provides property requirements for tiles and other useful information on these products. The committee responsible for this standard is NA 062-02-73 AA "Prüfung von keramischen Bauteilen für Wand- und Bodenbeläge" at DIN.
