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).

Due to the very large astn 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. If there are no material specifications, then the default conditions apply. Rigid foams are typically used in the construction industry as sound and thermal insulation.

Bluehill Universal Asm Bluehill Universal Software is built from the ground-up for touch interaction and an intuitive user experience. Suitable systems for this application include Series and Series electromechanical testing machines equipped with compression platens.
The self-aligning nature of this fixture will maximize the contact area between the platen and the specimen. Glossary of Materials Testing Terms. Contact Us View Accessories Catalog.
ASTM D specifies the test conditions for determining the compressive properties of rigid cellular materials, particularly expanded plastics. Touchstone Research Laboratory, Ltd. The challenges of testing to this standard are: Bluehill LE for Basic Testing.
Software for Series Systems. The brochure addresses the most prominent and widely-used standards in the materials testing industry for plastics. These test specimens are carefully prepared so the faces are parallel to each other and perpendicular to the sides.
ASTM D1621-16 Compressive Properties of Rigid Cellular Plastics
The preload function in Bluehill Universal software automatically moves the upper compression platen down to precisely touch the specimen at a pre-defined load. Please confirm that you agree with our privacy and cookies policy to submit this form. 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.

ASTM D – 16 Standard Test Method for Compressive Properties of Rigid Cellular Plastics
Swivel seating can be placed on the platen attached to the instrument’s base or load cell in the moving crosshead. 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.
Subscribe to Our Newsletters. It is important to review ASTM D in order to fully understand the d16211 setup, procedure, and results requirements. Historical Version s – view previous xstm of standard. Due to the very large number of tests offered, descriptions of those most commonly requested have been gathered into the following groups:.
Such applications require additional tests such as impact, creep, and fatigue. To reduce the possible effects from off-center loading, it is preferred to place the swivel seat in the base.

WaveMatrix 2 for Dynamic Testing. ASTM D Testing is the compressive strength of a cellular material determined by applying load to a test specimen with a square or circular cross section. After testing and analysis, compressive strength, modulus and deformation at maximum load are reported.
