Plastics - Thermoplastic materials - Determination of Vicat softening temperature (VST)

active, Most Current
Organization: CEN
Publication Date: 1 November 2013
Status: active
Page Count: 28
ICS Code (Thermoplastic materials): 83.080.20
scope:

This International Standard specifies four methods for the determination of the Vicat softening temperature (VST) of thermoplastic materials:

- method A50 using a force of 10 N and a heating rate of 50 K/h;

- method B50 using a force of 50 N and a heating rate of 50 K/h;

- method A120 using a force of 10 N and a heating rate of 120 K/h;

- method B120 using a force of 50 N and a heating rate of 120 K/h.

The methods specified are applicable only to thermoplastics, for which they give a measure of the temperature at which the thermoplastics start to soften rapidly.
