Thermal Testing at Plastics Technology Laboratories, Inc.
Common Thermal Tests like Coefficient
of Thermal Expansion (ASTM E 831, ASTM D 696, ASTM E 1545, ISO 11359)
Deflection Temperature HDT and Deflection Temperature Under Load DTUL
(ASTM D648, ISO 75), Melting Point and Glass Transition Temperature by
Differential Scanning Calorimetry DSC
(ASTM D3417, ASTM D 3418, ISO 11357, ISO 3146 / Method C) Vicat
Softening Point (ASTM D1525, ISO 306), Thermogravametric Analysis
(ASTM E1131, ISO 11358) are expertly performed at Plastics Technology
Laboratories, Inc. In addition, PTLI also performs many other Thermal
Tests required by the plastic industry, including Thermal
Stability (ASTM D3575), Thermal Relaxation (Mil-P-25690B) and full
Thermal Indexing programs, to name just a few. Nearly, every Thermal
and is performed on state of the art equipment to assure that you receive
the accurate and precise results you require, and our turn
around times cannot be beat.
Thermal properties, in general, elucidate
the response of plastics to elevated or reduced temperature and can be
performed under varied gasses, stresses or environments.
PTLI also has the ability for ASTM and ISO Sample
Preparation by Injection Molding, along with CNC Machining and Compression
Molding to assure that your ASTM and ISO samples are properly prepared.
Our knowledge of materials allows us to
assist you in choosing the correct test, be it Coefficient of Thermal
Expansion or Heat
Deflection Temperature. Whether it is a plastic that might require
Melting Point by Differential
Scanning Calorimetry, an elastomer needing Oxygen
Index or a Film or composite material requiring Thermogrametric
Analysis, we can help.
Industry leaders rely on PTLI for all their Thermal
Testing requirements, be it for plastics performance, quality analysis,
PPAP submission and material development to name a few. When it comes
to Thermal Testing PTLI is truly The Leader In Plastics Testing with 20
years experience and full capabilities. For a Quote on these or any other
