Dual Column Tabletop Universal Testing Systems 50 kN – Instron 5969
Dual column systems are multi-purpose instruments that are commonly used for plastics, metals, rubber materials, automotive components and composites. Its speed is ranging from 0,001 to 3000 mm/min. The machine is used to perform stretching and bending tests at ambient temperature as well as with a use of temperature chamber.
HD T Vicat – CEAST HV3 (Instron)
An apparatus for measuring plastic deformation of stressed (HDT) and softening (Vicat) temperatures. Technical parameters are the following: three testing stations, temperature ranging from 20 to 300°C and a heating method that uses silicone oil.
Impact Pendulum Machine – CEAST 9050 (Instron)
An impact pendulum is designed for determining the resilience of thermoplastic materials to impact (Charpy, ISO 179) with a maximum energy of 25 J.
Environmental Stress Chamber – ARS-0220 (Espec)
Achieving reliability requires a system that delivers results quickly and reflects environmental conditions. The environmental stress chamber can withstand heat loads generated by the specimen and achieve improved change rate in an expanded temperature and humidity range. The chamber is also equipped with a specimen temperature control function. Technical parameters are: temperature control ranging from –75 to +180°C with humidity control (10 to 98% rh).
UVTest Fluorescent/UV Instrument – ATLAS
A chamber for aging tests includes a raining system and closed water circulation. It is equipped with research programs for the most popular standards and enables to accept user programs. Fluorescent UV lamps: (8) – 40 W.
The CAT2 is widely used for analyzing coatings with thicknesses between 0.1 μm and 50 μm. Typical measured materials include CVD, PVD, plasma spray coatings, anodic oxidation layers, chemical and galvanic deposits, polymers, paints and lacquers. Flat, spherical or cylindrical samples can be fixed in the sample holder. ISO EN 1071.
Hardness Shore scale A and D
Hardness test according to DIN ISO 7619, DIN EN ISO 868, ASTM 2240, DIN 53505.
