  Brabender plastography of thermoestables

Determination of the time-torque curve for curing phenol-based and urea-based molding powders. The minimum flowability, cure time and flow time of the molding powders can be accurately determined. This test can be performed at different temperatures. It provides essential information to adjust production parameters and for the Lab to optimize the moulding powders on the usage for compression, transfer or injection.
  Free phenol by gas chromatography
ISO 8974 Standard: Method for determining the residual phenol content of phenolic resins by gas chromatography. The resin is dissolved in a suitable solvent and the percentage of free phenol is determined using phenol-free m-cresol as an internal standard. The gas chromatograph is fitted with a capillary column and a flame ionization detector (FID).
Drop point for stearates and waxes
ASTM D 3954 Standard: Method for determining the temperature at which wax suspended in a cylindrical cone with a 2.8 mm diameter hole in the bottom flows a distance of 19 mm and breaks a light beam. The wax is heated at a constant temperature gradient.
 
  Martens degree of deformation
UNE 53026 Standard: Method for measuring, under specified conditions, the temperature at which a test specimen under a determined flexion force is displaced a pre-established distance.
Water absorption
ISO 62 Standard: Method for determining the water absorbed when a moulded test sample of a moulding compound is submerged in water at room temperature and at 100°C.
Transfer flow of a moulding compound
ISO 7808 Standard: Method for determining the fluidity of a moulding compound by pressing it in a standard mould under controlled conditions of pressure and temperature.
Granulometric analysis of powdered additives and loads
Method for determining the percentage of material retained in a sieve. The test material is placed on a sieve and subjected to a vacuum of 2.5 kPa.
Softening point of resins
ASTM D 3461 Standard: Method for determining the softening point of resins at a range of 50 to 180 °C. The resin is placed in a cylindrical cone with a 7.77 mm diameter hole in the bottom. A measurement is taken of the temperature at which the resin flows a distance of 19 mm and breaks a light beam. The resin is heated at a constant gradient of 2°C / min.
Percentage water content using Karl-Fisher methods
ISO 760 Standard: The method is based on the reaction of the water present in moulding compounds placed in a methanol solution of iodine and sulphur dioxide.
Apparent density of moulding compounds
UNE-EN-ISO 60 and UNE 53015 (II) Standards: Method for determining the weight of the moulding compound that fills a 100 ml capacity cylinder.
Charpy impact properties
UNE-EN-ISO 179 Standard: Method for determining the impact strength of a test specimen moulded from a moulding compound using a pendulum with a specific weight and period.
Post-moulding shrinkage of a moulding compound
ISO 2577 Standard: Method for determining the shrinkage of a standard test specimen after moulding under controlled pressure and temperature conditions. The determination is made using a micrometre after allowing the moulded test sample to stand for 16 hours at 23 ± 2°C and 45-55% relative humidity.
Density of a moulded product
ASTM D 792 Standard: Method for determining the density of a test specimen by calculating its mass in air and when immersed in water.
