Start Webshop Product catalog Product presentation. Test specimens are molded under specified conditions. The parts cool and after 48 hours, the molded parts are measured and the shrinkage is calculated. Record these values as l and w, respectively. To request a quote for this test or others Click Here. It is recommended to cool specimens in a horizontal position at room temperature by placing them on a material of low thermal conductivity to minimize warpage.

This ensures that you are always up-to-date and saves you both time and money. You may delete a document from your Alert Profile at any time.

ASTM D – 08 Standard Test Method of Measuring Shrinkage from Mold Dimensions of Thermoplastics

Each test result is the average of ve individual determinations from successive injection molding cycles. The data in Axtm should not be rigorously applied to acceptance or rejected of material, as those data are specic to the round robin and may not be representative of other lots, conditions, materials, or laboratories.

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.

Pressure transducers are recommended, but not mandatory for specimens Type A and Type B. As the voice of the U. The decrease in the cavity pressure at hold to zero indicates that the material in the gate has solidied sufficiently to stop ow into the cavity.

Differences in mold shrinkage may also be observed among the three specimen geometries described in this test method.
