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).

Concrete, Asphalt and Rock. The x series LVDTs can mount directly on the series compression platens.
Rigid foams are typically used in the construction industry as sound and thermal insulation. The values in parentheses are for information astj. Discover simpler and smarter testing with features such as pre-loaded test methods, QuickTest in seconds, enhanced data exporting: How can we help you?
ASTM D – 16 Standard Test Method for Compressive Properties of Rigid Cellular Plastics
It is important to review ASTM D in order to fully understand the test setup, procedure, and results requirements. Astmm applications require additional tests such as impact, creep, and fatigue. The tests cannot be considered significant for engineering design in applications differing widely from the load – time scale of the standard test. Users of previous versions of software such as Bluehill 2 and Bluehill 3 can easily upgrade to the newest version of Bluehill.

Swivel seating can be placed on the platen attached to the instrument’s base or load cell in the moving crosshead. They are designed with standard and optional features that increase testing efficiency and improve the testing experience for the operator. Suitable systems for this application include Series and Series electromechanical testing machines equipped with compression platens.
WaveMatrix 2 for Dynamic Testing.

Bluehill LE for Basic Testing. The preload function reduces the amount of operator interaction, saving time and improving accuracy. Description Literature Contact Us ASTM D specifies the test conditions for determining the compressive properties of rigid cellular materials, particularly expanded plastics. Software for Series Systems. 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.
Onsite Training At Your Facility. The data obtained from the compression tests provide a standard method of obtaining data for research and development and quality control.
