The Instron series of CEAST Thermo-mechanical systems are built for characterizing the behavior of plastic materials at high temperatures, measuring the Vicat softening temperature (Vicat) and the heat deflection temperature (HDT). These HDT and VICAT testers range from very basic units for quality control labs to more innovative and automated systems.
HV3S, HV6M, HV6X HDT and Vicat Testers
The design of the HV Systems and BLUEHILL® HV Software is based on the total understanding of customers’ needs for both an improved user-experience and exceptional productivity, making materials testing simpler, safer, and smarter.
HV500 Oil-Free HDT and Vicat Tester
For quality control and research of techno-polymers at high temperatures, the Instron CEAST HV 500 is designed to test the Vicat and HDT at temperatures up to 500 °C.
