TrendTracker for Bluehill Materials Testing Software

TrendTracker™ is a tool to help manage and present BH results data. TrendTracker can take results from all tests performed within BH and store them in an SQL data base. TrendTracker can do this for single or multiple machines and store all the data in the same place. This data can then be sorted and grouped to produce statistical trends for areas of interest.

CEAST AlOxide® performs HDT and Vicat Tests at up to 500 °C

The newly developed Instron CEAST AlOxide® thermal tester determines the Vicat softening temperature and HDT heat deflection temperature of plastics at temperatures up to 500 °C, allowing measurements to be conducted even on highly temperature resistant thermoplastics such as PEEK. Unlike conventional instruments, which use silicone oil as heating medium and typically offer maximum temperatures of 300 °C, the Instron CEAST AlOxide uses heat-resistant aluminium oxide powder in a fluid bed. The method is expected to be adopted in the relevant European standards in the near future.
