COMPRESSION SET

Compression Set Testing is used to measure a material’s ability to retain elastic properties after compression. It is conducted using ASTM D 395, ASTM F 36, ASTM D 1229, and ISO methods, under a variety of fluids and environments. Different methods are available for testing the compressibility and recovery of gasket materials.

COMPRESSION SET

Compression Set Testing is a method used to measure a material’s ability to retain elastic properties after compression. It is used to evaluate a material’s sealing force retention. Compression Set Testing is conducted in accordance with standards such as ASTM D 395, ASTM F 36, ASTM D 1229, and ISO methods. 

Video 01: What is Compression Set?

The first step is to determine the appropriate deflection or constant force the material should be subjected. The test can be conducted under a variety of fluids and environments while under compressive forces. There are different methods for testing the compressibility and recovery of gasket materials such as ASTM F 36 and ASTM D 395 Method B. The ASTM F 36 is the standard test method for rubber property – compression set – method B, constant deflection, while ASTM D 395 Method B is for compression set – constant force. ASTM D 395 Method A is also used for testing the compression set. 

Compression Set Testing is a reliable method for measuring a material’s ability to maintain elastic properties after compression. It is used to evaluate a material’s sealing force retention using various ASTM and ISO methods. The test is conducted under a variety of fluids and environments while under compressive forces. Different methods are available for testing the compressibility and recovery of gasket materials such as ASTM F 36, ASTM D 395 Method B, and ASTM D 395 Method A.
