Announcing Our Newest Acquisition: The HV3S HDT/Vicat Tester for Thermo-Mechanical Testing of Plastic Materials

The newest acquisition of the PCE Materials lab is the Instron HV3S HDT/Vicat tester. This new system is used to evaluate the behavior of plastics at high temperatures. The HV3S measures the heat deflection temperature (HDT) and the Vicat softening temperature (Vicat) of materials. This system replaces our outgoing Ceast HDT6 that has been [...]

Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC)

DSC thermal analysis is a great way to study a polymer’s response to heat. It is also available for a wide range of other samples, such as elastomers and plastics, serving a wide range of industries. DSC analysis measures the amount of energy absorbed or released by a sample when it is heated or cooled, [...]
