This guideline describes flexibility and stretchability tests that may be used to evaluate printed electronics for flexible, stretchable and wearable applications. 

Purpose This guideline describes tests which the IPC D-65 Printed Electronics Test Methods and Validation Subcommittee deemed appropriate for consideration for flexibility and stretchability testing of printable electronics. The descriptions of these tests were provided by members of the D-65 Subcommittee. 

This guideline does not represent an endorsement of any of the described tests. It is intended only as an educational resource, especially for the smart textiles and wearable printed electronics markets, until standardized test methods are developed and approved. 

The D-65 Subcommittee invites users, suppliers, test laboratories and other interested parties to submit additional tests or modifications to those explained herein for next revisions of this guideline. 

This guideline also includes references to industry-approved test methods which can be used or adapted for flexibility and stretchability testing for printed electronics (see Section 5 and Appendix B).
