Presto’s Accelerated Aging Oven – ISO 188:2011 is used to measure the effects of elevated temperatures on the different properties of material. This method gauges the result of different temperatures on the properties of substance.
The test procedure is performed in air at a specified temperature for a specified period. Properties are considered before and after high-temperature exposure. Standards of the instrument represent the change in hardness point which is calculated as a percentage change in properties with the percentage change in durometer hardness along with the change in IRHD hardness. Small change in the value of hardness represents the transform in hardness points.
