HDT/Vicat Tester DW5340J

5.0 (1 review)

HDT/Vicat Tester, also named HDT/VICAT Heat Deflection Testers which is mainly used to do the HDT test and Vicat test for non-metal materials: such as plastic, rubber, nylon and electrical insulating material. They are the perfect test tools for chemical industry, R&D department and academies or colleges.

HDT/Vicat Tester DW5340J

DW5340J-100 Series HDT/Vicat Softening Temperature Tester is mainly used to determine the heat deflection temperature and Vicat softening temperature of plastics, ebonite, nylon, electric insulation materials, long-fiber-reinforced composite materials, high-strength thermosetting laminated materials and other non-metallic materials, as an index of controlling quality and identifying thermal property of new products.

This machine complies with the following standards:

HDT: GB/T 1634, ISO 75, ASTM D648

VST :GB/T 1633, 8802, ISO 306, 2507, ASTM D1525

Follows are features of HDT/Vicat softening temperature Tester

  • Single chip microcomputer control, PID control output, real-time key storage, query test results, withupper limit temperature setting, automaticallystops heating when the test temperature reaches the upper limit temperature;
  • LED digital tube display, the test results are straightforward;
  • High reliability and precision, easy to operate.


Application of HDT/Vicat Tester

“HDT” test means the test determines the temperature at which a specified deflection occurs when a standard test specimen is subjected to a bending stress, to produce one of the nominal surface stresses according to international standards.

This test is important for both quality control and research into plastics.

“VICAT” test means the test determines the temperature at which a standard indenter penetrates 1mm into the surface of a test specimen under load.

It is used to establish the difference between many types of thermoplastic materials with regard to their softening properties.
