Heat Deformation Tester
Heat Deformation – HDT/VSP Tester is a consistent tool useful for determining the ability of a given polymer to bear load at elevated temperatures. Accurate and reliable deflection or deformation is an important component in the plastics industry. PRESTO Heat Deformation HDT/VSP tester is equipped with indenter which indents the sample under specific load and offers heat deformation and Vicat Softening temperature of plastic or polymer materials. The deflection on the gauge is the measure of deformation of the test specimen.
Presto’s Heat Deformation Tester is designed as per ASTM D1525 – 09 and ASTM D648 – 07 to determine deflection temperature and Vicat softening temperature of plastics. The machine is equipped with two stations. Stainless steel is used for the construction of inner bath, and Mild Steel is used for outside body with powder coating.
With the excellent operational accuracy, the offered Heat Deformation Tester is extensively used to measure the deflection temperature and Vicat softening temperature of plastic materials.
