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. ASTM D is similar to ISO and describes a procedure for determining the compressive properties of rigid cellular materials. Similar to ISO , ASTM D is a testing standard designed to measure the compressive properties of rigid cellular plastics (i.e. foam).

Rigid foams are typically used in the construction industry as d621 and thermal insulation. The preload function in Bluehill Universal software automatically moves the upper compression platen down to precisely touch the specimen at a pre-defined load. The brochure addresses the most prominent and widely-used standards in the materials testing industry for plastics.

Discover simpler and smarter testing with features such as pre-loaded test methods, QuickTest in seconds, enhanced data exporting: Swivel seating can be placed on the platen attached to the instrument’s base or load cell in the moving crosshead. Such applications require additional tests such as impact, creep, and fatigue.
ASTM D Compressive Properties Rigid Cellular Plastics – Instron
The test specimens are centered between two compression platens photo below left and load is applied at a constant crosshead or actuator rate. 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.
Due to the very large number of tests offered, descriptions of those most commonly requested have been gathered into the following groups:.
Plastics Testing Solutions Brochure The Plastics Testing Solutions brochure is a page, applications-focused, and standards-based brochure. It is important to review ASTM D in order to fully understand the test setup, procedure, and results requirements. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. Description Literature Contact Us ASTM D specifies the test conditions for determining the compressive properties of rigid cellular materials, particularly expanded plastics.
The x series LVDTs can mount directly on the series compression platens. ASTM D specifies the test conditions for determining the compressive properties of rigid cellular materials, particularly expanded plastics. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
The tests cannot be considered significant for engineering design in applications differing widely from the load – time scale of the standard test.
The preload function reduces the amount of operator interaction, saving time and improving accuracy. Bluehill Universal Brochure Bluehill Universal Software is built from the ground-up for touch ashm and an intuitive user experience. The data obtained from the compression aatm provide a standard method of obtaining data for research and development and quality control. Touchstone Research Laboratory, Ltd.
