Vicat measurement

With the help of Vicat measurements the production batches are constantly monitored. In the case of deviations in the parameters we can immediately intervene by making adjustments to the production process. The curve shape and the final temperature show the development of the material parameters hardness and toughness under controlled heating. This way, different materials and different production batches of a material can be compared.

Three materials in direct comparison: POM softens already at 60°C and then gradually becomes softer. PA 6 is the last to soften, but therefore deforms much earlier (see also elastic modulus). PA 12G remains solid and elastic up to 150°C.

During the Vicat measurement samples of the material are evenly heated through while the penetration behaviour of an evenly loaded metal tip is measured
