Thermal regulated Block for the performance of aging tests in air and in liquids of elastomeric materials at temperatures up to 250°C conforming to ISO 188, 1817 ASTM D 471 and 865 Standards.
Aging tests are typically carried out to measure the variation of characteristics of an article before and after the aging process. The characteristics that are most frequently measured before and after aging are:
• Variation of mechanical characteristics (loading, lengthening, tearing)
• Variation of hardness
• Percentage variation of mass and volume.
Gibitre, in addition to providing this tool to perform accelerated aging in air or in liquid, also provides the tools to measure changes in the properties of the article and to produce the related reports.
