ASTM D specifies the test conditions for determining the compressive properties of rigid cellular materials, particularly expanded plastics. Rigid foams. 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.

It is important to review ASTM D in order to fully understand the test setup, procedure, and results requirements. How can we help you?
The tests cannot be considered significant for engineering design in applications differing widely from the load – time scale of the standard test. Due to the very large number of tests offered, descriptions of those most commonly requested have been gathered into the following groups: If there are asgm material specifications, then the default conditions apply.
AllroundLine for individual testing requirements and all applications The optimum solution for demanding testing applications, whether in quality control or for research projects. xstm
Swivel seating can be placed on the platen attached to the instrument’s base or load cell in the moving crosshead. Instron offers linear variable displacement transducers LVDTs for measurement directly awtm the platens.
ast, Bluehill Universal Brochure Bluehill Universal Dd1621 is built from the ground-up for touch interaction and an intuitive user experience.
The Plastics Testing Solutions brochure is a page, applications-focused, and standards-based brochure. We’re ready to help! Touchstone Research Laboratory, Ltd. Continue to apply load until the sample yields or wstm the sample has been compressed to the percentage of original thickness indicated in the standard.
Any test specimen preparation, conditioning, dimensions, or testing parameters, or a combination thereof, covered in the materials specification shall take precedence over those mentioned in this test method.
Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. After testing and analysis, compressive strength, modulus and deformation at maximum load are reported. Check this box to receive pertinent commercial email from Instron focusing on products, upcoming events, and more!
Rigid Cellular Plastic Compression Properties (ISO 844 and ASTM D1621)
Due to the very large number of tests offered, descriptions of those most commonly requested have been gathered into the following groups:. Touchstone has a large environmental chamber photo on right capable of conditioning a wide range of sample sizes. While in EN and ISO the movement of the compression platen is typically measured by the crosshead travel of the testing machine with a defined minimum accuracy, ASTM D describes an additional method that compensates for the self-deformation of the testing machine.
Standard load ratings up to kN 67, lbf ; higher ratings available upon request Platen diameters from 56 mm to mm 2. Contact Us Request an Accessory Catalog. ASTM D specifies the test conditions for determining the compressive properties of rigid cellular materials, particularly expanded plastics.
For measurements to ISO Method BZwickRoell offers mechanical and optical travel measuring systems for the precise recording of specimen deformation. To reduce the possible effects from off-center loading, it is preferred to place the swivel seat in the base.
ASTM D – 16 Standard Test Method for Compressive Properties of Rigid Cellular Plastics
The system can also be connected ashm a defectometer to provide more accurate deflection data. Purpose of the Test Compressive properties include the compressive strength, maximum compressive deformation, and asstm compression modulus, which describes the short-term deformation under load.
Test data is obtained, and from a complete load-deformation curve it is possible to compute the compressive stress at any load such as compressive stress at proportional-limit load or compressive strength at maximum load and to compute the effective modulus of elasticity.
Note that the standards are similar but not the same. Make sure that your samples are the correct size as indicated in the specification.
