Applications
HV-3000-D3/D6
Lightweight and compact HDT/VICAT tester. It is designed to measure heat deflection temperature and VICAT softening temperature for evaluation of thermal property
of plastic materials.
HV-3000-P3/P6
Bench type HDT/VICAT tester. It is designed to measure heat deflection temperature
and VICAT softening temperature for evaluation of thermal property of plastic materials. This tester features high precision temperature ramp rate control. LVDT sensor is
used on each station to ensure high accuracy of deflection measurement.
HV-3000-P3C/P6C
Floor model HDT/VICAT tester. Application same as above. With a built in water
chiller, the oil bath can be cooled down faster and easier without connecting to an
external water supply. This model comes with the high precision temperature ramp
rate control and LVDT sensors. The operator can easily monitor real-time graph, start
cooling, modify test condition and edit test report in a few simple steps with the HDT
software. Moreover, our HDT software can automatically calculate required loading
weight based on specified test conditions and save test result.
VICAT Softening temperature
"VICAT softening temperature" or "VICAT hardness is the determination of the softening point for materials that have no
definite melting point, such as plastics. It is taken as the temperature at which the specimen is penetrated to a depth of 1 mm
by a flat-ended needle with a 1 mm2 circular or square cross-section. For the VICAT A test, a load of 10 N is used. For the
VICAT B test, the load is 50 N.
Standards to determine VICAT softening point include ASTM D 1525 and ISO 306, which are largely equivalent
Heat deflection temperature
The heat deflection temperature or heat distortion temperature (HDT, HDTUL, or DTUL) is the temperature at which a polymer
or plastic sample deforms under a specified load. This property of a given plastic material is applied in many aspects of
product design, engineering, and manufacture of products using thermoplastic components.
