ASTM D648, ISO 75 is used for the determination of Deflection Temperature Under Load (DTUL or HDT) data for polymer datasheets and material specifications. This test helps in identifying suitable material for design application that can sustain light loads at high temperatures
Heat Deflection Temperature (HDT) test by ASTM D648 is performed to determine the short-term heat resistance of polymeric materials. To find a suitable material for design application, it is necessary to identify materials that lose rigidity over a narrow temperature range and materials that can sustain light loads at high temperatures. Therefore, The heat deflection temperature is the temperature value at which a standard test bar of that material deflects a specified distance under a load.
A deflection measuring device is employed fordeflection temperature under load test by ASTM D648. Specimen bars of the test material are placed under the measuring device. Each bar is applied with a load of 0.45 MPa or 1.80 MPa. The specimen bars are then let down into a silicone oil bath, where the temperature is raised at 2° C per minute. The specimens are lowered down until they deflect 0.25 mm for ASTM. The deflection value is 0.32 mm for ISO flatwise and 0.34 mm for ISO edgewise.
Specimen bar size for ASTM is 5 inches × ½ inch × ¼ inch. As per ISO, edgewise testing is done using a bar having measurements 120 mm × 10 mm × 4 mm. For ISO flatwise testing, a bar measuring 80 mm × 10 mm × 4 mm is required.
The temperature value is recorded at the specified load and deflection.
ASTM D648 plays a role in the detection of heat resistance of polymeric materials and specifies their use. The deflection of the material in response to the load is noted and heat deflection temperature is recorded.
ASTM E572 test method covers the analysis of stainless and alloy steels by Wavelength Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometry (WDXRF). It provides rapid, multi-element determinations with sufficient accuracy to assure product quality.
The ASTM D2674 is a standard test method for the analysis of sulfochromate etches solution used in the surface preparation of aluminum. The ASTM D2674 standard specifies a method for determining the efficacy of an etchant used to prepare the surface of aluminum alloys for subsequent adhesive bonding.
An immunological method for quantization of Hevea Natural Rubber (HNRL) proteins using rabbit anti-HNRL serum. Rabbits immunized with HNRL proteins react to the majority of the proteins present, and their sera have the capability to detect most if not all the proteins in HNRL.
ASTM G65 measures the resistance of metallic materials to abrasion using the dry sand/rubber wheel apparatus. The quality, durability, and toughness of the sample are determined using this test. Metallic materials are ranked in their resistance to scratching abrasion under a controlled environment.
ASTM E2141 test methods provide accelerated aging and monitoring of the performance of time-dependent electrochromic devices (ECD) integrated in insulating glass units (IGU). This test helps to understand the relative serviceability of electrochromic glazings applied on ECD.
ASTM C724 test method is used in analyzing the quality and ease of maintenance of a ceramic decoration on architectural-type glass. This test method is useful in the acknowledgment of technical standards.
