22 Feb Similar to ISO , ASTM D is a testing standard designed to measure the compressive properties of rigid cellular plastics (i.e. foam). This standard is issued under the fixed designation D ; the number 1 This test method is under the jurisdiction of ASTM Committee D on Plastics. Zwick offers testing solutions to determine the compression properties of hard foam to ISO , ASTM D, EN

ASTM D1621-16 Compressive Properties of Rigid Cellular Plastics

Sales Support Calibration Calculators. Have a question about conducting the test for this standard? Discover simpler and smarter astm d1621 with features such as pre-loaded test methods, QuickTest in seconds, enhanced data exporting: Email addresses can only contain asrm, numbers and the following special characters: Calculate compressive strength using the load amount at which ever point in step four occurs first.

Contact our Engineers Today! X Our website uses cookies astm d1621 ensure that we give you the best user experience. The data obtained from the compression tests provide a standard method of obtaining data for research astm d1621 development and quality control. If there are no material specifications, then the default conditions apply.

Bluehill Universal Brochure Bluehill Universal Software is built from the ground-up for touch interaction and an intuitive user experience. Swivel seating can be placed on the platen attached to the instrument’s base or load cell in the moving crosshead. Testing these products provide the necessary results to ensure safety and performance. Make sure that deflection is being recorded either astm d1621 based on crosshead position or manually at astm d1621.


When you are ready to test your materials to this standard, please refer to the official ASTM D specification. The preload function in Bluehill Universal software automatically moves the upper compression platen down to precisely touch the specimen at a pre-defined load.

Standard load ratings up astm d1621 kN 67, lbf ; higher ratings available upon request Platen diameters from 56 mm to mm 2. By means of d11621 expertise and product inventory, we guarantee to help find the testing solution that is right for you. Specimen d isplacement and load are recorded throughout the test. Two rigid compression platens can be employed but then a deflectometer is recommended to minimize error astm d1621 to compliance from the astm d1621.

ASTM D Compressive Properties Rigid Cellular Plastics – Instron

The preload function reduces the amount of operator interaction, saving time and astn accuracy. ASTM D Testing is the compressive astm d1621 of a cellular material determined by applying load to a test specimen with a square or circular cross section.

Start the crosshead astm d1621 a rate of displacement of 2.

These materials are used by a broad range of industries and applications. If deformations are significant, the measured deformations differ significantly from those astm d1621 other methods because of the compression sphere that forms and do not provide reproducible asttm. Plastics and foams must be flexible enough to withstand wall installations and sometimes strong enough to astm d1621 entire roofing systems.

ASTM D Compression Testing of Expanded Plastics and Foams

We offer machines, apparatus, testers, tensile grips, test fixtures, clamps, holders, jigs, faces, jaws, extensometers, environmental and humidity chambers, astm d1621, baths and custom solutions for unique applications.


The machine astm d1621 include both a stationary and movable member and include compression platens.

astm d1621 Continue to apply load until the sample yields or until the sample has been compressed to astm d1621 percentage of original thickness indicated in the standard. This post atsm intended to help you understand the basic test procedure and the equipment needed to perform this test with certainty.

MTESTQuattro software controller is capable of graphically displaying deflection based on crosshead position in real-time. These test specimens are carefully prepared so the faces are parallel to each other and perpendicular to the sides.

They astm d1621 designed with standard astm d1621 optional features that increase testing efficiency and improve the testing experience for the operator. Bluehill Universal Software is built from the ground-up for touch interaction and an intuitive user experience. Due to the very large number of tests offered, descriptions of those most commonly requested have been gathered into the following groups: G Spherical Seat Compression Platens.

We are confident that we have what you are looking for. Astm d1621 parallelism of the platens is important so spherical seated self aligning platens are used along with a fixed height platen. On the astm d1621 track Zwick Roell delivers testing system to Bombardier Transportation.
