Compression strength of plastics

This test is used to determine the compression properties of rigid and semi-rigid plastics according to the ISO 604 standard.

A range of test speeds and specimen dimensions are included in the standard method. For comparative results, these parameters must be chosen carefully.

Testing is typically performed on type B test pieces with five parallel measurements per sample. As a result, you will get the compressive strength, modulus, and stress/strain curves, which can be used to evaluate the material's properties.

The price does not include sample preparation.
