Instrument for determining heat deflection temperature (HDT) and Vicat softening point
max 500 °C Instron


Instron's CEAST HDT & Vicat tester measures thermal properties of plastic items with accurate values like analysis of heat deflection temperature (HDT) and Vicat softening temperature. There are different ranges of equipment available from simple conventional oil machines to some unorthodox high technology devices, silicon oil free and with a capability to test materials up to 500° C temperature. One of the most trusted tester for HDT and Vicat analysis is CEAST HV3 - HV6 - HV6A tester which has a automatic grip over the whole test cycle. The device is completely equipped with command keyboard, built in parameters with a result display and have the ability to keep a track on temperature and deflection both at a time.
