Heat deformation tester is used to measure the physical characteristics of plastic at a constant, high temperature. Heat deformation tester is alternatively referred to as the deflection tester that is primarily used to measure the bending strength/limit of the various polymers as per the industry requirements. Plastic, being a heat-sensitive material, its load-bearing capacity depends on the surrounding temperature. Heat deformation tester is a tool useful for determining the ability of plastics and polymers to bear load at different temperatures.
Heat deformation tester is used in multiple industries to ensure the quality of plastic products. Increasing use of quality plastic products in industries such as agriculture, electronics, and plastics industry, is boosting the growth of heat deformation tester market across the globe. Selection of appropriate plastic based material for high-quality products associated with the automobiles and airplanes requires precise and accurate testing at various temperature. Rapid adoption of plastic products in automobile and airplane manufacturing field is one of the factors that is likely to push the demand for heat deformation tester.
