A reliable instrument for determining the susceptibility of the ethylene plastics to environmental stress cracking. Test materials are subjected to a predetermined bending stress then exposed to different environments to test for cracking.
Our Environmental Stress Cracking Apparatus determines the susceptibility of ethylene plastics to stress cracking when exposed to different environments such as soaps, wetting agents, oils, acids, and detergents.
Test samples are subjected to a predetermined bending stress and then exposed to different environments to see if they exhibit any mechanical defects by cracking, perfect for testing samples before production or final design processes.
When the material is under certain conditions of stress, environmental reagents such as soaps, wetting agents, detergents, and acids can accelerate the cracking process which is one of the most common causes of unexpected brittle failure of polymers known. Designed in accordance with ASTM D1693, the apparatus is extremely cost-effective and very simple to use.
The apparatus is supplied with electronic digital temperature control, temperature bath, and all tooling accessories to ensure a convenient testing process.
Tooling accessories for our environmental stress cracking testing instrument include:
It’s important that when you’re carrying out environmental stress cracking testing, you know whether you’re meeting international standards. That’s why this apparatus is compliant with ASTM D1693, the standard test method for evaluating the Environmental Stress Cracking Resistance (ESCR) of Ethylene plastics, by chemical immersion of pre-stressed specimens at elevated temperatures.
