ASTM D4268-93 would appear to be the relevant testing standard, but this was withdrawn in 2002 and is no longer active. Is there a current standard?

Go directly to the ASTM site. I put "nylon rope" in search and it said there were 154 possibilities.

Probably ASTM A931 - 18 Standard Test Method for Tension Testing of Wire Ropes and Strand

There are others closely related but not exactly the same.

  • ASTM F3410 - 19 Standard Test Method for Testing Fiber Rope Used in Water Sports
  • ISO 3108:2017(en), Steel wire ropes — Test method

  • $\begingroup$ The appropriate ISO standards appears to be ISO 2307:2019(en), but I'm looking for an ASTM option. Unfortunately, my application is not water sports or F3410 would probably be applicable. $\endgroup$ Commented Aug 21, 2020 at 19:23
