Thermal and physical tests
The following thermal properties can be determined:
- Melting point and/or glass transition temperature (measured in DSC)
- Temperature of deflection under load (HDT/A or HDT/B)
- Vicat softening temperature (VST/A or VST/B)
- Thermal conductivity (LFA, measured with LFA 447 Nanoflash made by Netzsch)
The hot storage temperature is determined in accordance with DIN 53497 specifically for vendor parts on the automobile sector to verify the dimensional accuracy of the components.
