PLASTIC AND RUBBER TESTING
BRITTLENESS + TR-TESTER
Brittleness + TR-Tester w/built-in cooling
Specific thermal testing
System to perform two of the most important tests for rubber and elastomers:
- low temperature retraction (TR)
- Brittleness Point for tests at a stabilized temperature both for the effects of crystallization and the elastic return of the specimens.
Equipped with an incremental temperature electronic programmer, the chiller unit allows to reach temperatures of -75°C, the test tank has a capacity of 20 liters.
To implement the impact of the Brittleness Point, the instrument uses a pendular hammer which, rotating around the constrained end, hits the specimen. Repeatability and constancy are ensured by an automatic release system of the hammer.
