Does Your Specimen Quality have an Adverse Effect on Your Data Reliability?

The Instron® Hollow Die Punch system is a tool used to create dog bone shaped specimens easily, quickly, and safely. An ideal choice over the “manual” punching of specimens, the system is powered by compressed air and creates a tensile specimen that is free of tool marks, incipient cracks, induced stresses, internal deformation, and heat distortion in or on the specimen.

CEAST HDT Vicat Series HV500

The effect of temperature on the mechanical properties of plastic materials has a fundamental role in the design of components, especially in the selection of materials. Unlike metals and ceramics, plastics are extremely sensitive to the slightest changes in temperature. The selection of plastics for applications under different temperatures is a complex task. The material must be able to support a stress under operating conditions without losing its strength and without critical distortion. The effect of temperature on geometrical stability and mechanical properties in general can be studied following different procedures and methods like at constant temperature or with a temperature ramp. From very simple units for QC labs to more advanced and automated systems, the Instron line of CEAST Thermal testers are designed to measure the heat deflection temperature (HDT) and the Vicat softening temperature (VST) according to the related ISO and ASTM international standards.
