This standard is issued under the fixed designation D ; the number 1 This test method is under the jurisdiction of ASTM Committee D on Plastics. ASTM D is similar to ISO and describes a procedure for determining the compressive properties of rigid cellular materials. Similar to ISO , ASTM D is a testing standard designed to measure the compressive properties of rigid cellular plastics (i.e. foam).

ASTM D1621 – Compression Testing of Rigid Cellular Plastics
The self-aligning nature of this fixture will maximize the contact area between the platen and the specimen. Such applications require additional tests such as impact, creep, and fatigue. Discover simpler and smarter testing with features such as pre-loaded test methods, QuickTest in seconds, enhanced data exporting: Specimen d isplacement and load are recorded throughout the test.
These test specimens are carefully prepared so the faces are parallel to each other and perpendicular to the sides. The Plastics Testing Solutions brochure is a page, applications-focused, and standards-based brochure. Description Literature Contact Us ASTM D specifies the test conditions for determining the compressive properties of rigid cellular materials, particularly expanded plastics. Select from list below: Bluehill LE for Basic Astj.
Next Checking to see if you are a returning visitor…. Swivel seating can be placed on the platen attached to the instrument’s base or load cell in the moving crosshead.

Email addresses can only contain letters, numbers and the following special characters: After testing and analysis, compressive strength, modulus and deformation at maximum load are reported. Please confirm that you agree with our privacy and cookies policy to submit this form. Glossary of Materials Testing Terms. Any test specimen preparation, conditioning, dimensions, or testing parameters, or a combination thereof, covered in the materials specification shall take precedence over those mentioned in this test method.
The test dd1621 are centered between two compression platens photo below left and load is applied at a constant crosshead or actuator rate. The preload function in Bluehill Universal software automatically moves the upper compression platen down to precisely touch the specimen at a pre-defined load. The preload function reduces the amount of operator interaction, saving time and improving accuracy.
Concrete, Asphalt and Rock. Rigid foams are typically used in the construction industry as sound and thermal insulation.
ASTM D – 16 Standard Test Method for Compressive Properties of Rigid Cellular Plastics
Onsite Training At Your Facility. Ast addresses must contain the symbol. Subscribe to Our Newsletters. ASTM D Testing is the compressive strength of a cellular material determined by applying load to a test specimen with a square atm circular cross section.
Test data is obtained, and satm a complete load-deformation curve it is possible to compute the compressive stress at any load such as compressive stress at proportional-limit load or compressive strength at maximum load and to compute the effective modulus of elasticity. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
To reduce the possible effects from off-center loading, it is preferred to place the swivel seat in the base.
If there are no material specifications, then the default conditions apply. Subscribe to Instron News!
