A Vicat Softening Temperature test from ASTM D1525 can test a plastic's mechanical properties for development and quality control.
A controller can test how much a mold will shrink by placing it in a high-pressure chamber with controlled temperature, volume, and pressure, following ISO 17744.
For ISO 22007, testing technicians can determine thermal conductivity data easily by using Capillary Rheometers with applicable accessory.
The ISO Vicat Softening Temperature test determines how the surface of polymers react at high temperatures by placing a point load and increasing the temperature.
Instead of silicone oil for heat deflection temperature and vicat softening temperature tests, aluminum oxide fluid bath works with high temperature polymers.
With HDT tests, one can understand the mechanical properties of resins and composites with a resin matrix used in the nautical field.
