    For polymer melts, with respect to their numerical simulations, there were recommended to apply polymer samples (rectangles) with a width not exceeding 8 mm and a thickness less than 0.4 mm. The aim of this contribution is to document - for material used (LDPE Escorene, Exxon, USA) - the invariantness of the elongational viscosity measured with respect to sample dimensions including its width and thickness. The width of the samples used consecutively attained 12.7, 11.0, 9.3, and 7.4 mm; the thickness also ranged across a sufficiently broad interval (0.3-1.1mm). Temperature was set to 180, 190, and 200oC. For the measurements there were used the SER Universal Testing Platform from the Xpansion Instruments; the model SER-HV-P01 was applied with a Physica MCR501 rotational rheometer host system. The results obtained justify usage of a 'classical' width 12.7 mm (1/2") more suitable for better manipulation with a sample, especially its fixing to both drums perpendicularly to the clamps.
