PLASTIC AND RUBBER TESTING
STRESS CRACKING ESCR
Stress cracking resistance - ESCR
Mechanical and physical testing
Typical application in the field of ethylene plastics in which it must be established whether under certain stresses in the presence of liquids (oils, soaps, solvents, etc.) a cracking or breaking process is favored according to ASTM D 1693. The device allows cutting and the bending of the samples, to then perform the test with the aid of a thermostatic bath.
