Anisothermal stress relaxation test for characterizing TPE, elastomers and polymers With the TSSR-Meter conventional isothermal relaxation experiments can be performed as well as the temperature scanning stress relaxation (TSSR), an anisothermal stress relaxation method (AISR method).
Using this method the mechanical and thermal properties of TPE, plastics and elastomers can be characterized. The TSSR-Meter is suitable for the development of materials for production support and quality control. With the increasing importance of TPE an important factor, especially in the automotive industry.
• Reduced testing time and effort (4h TSSR vs. 72h compression set)
• Very good reproducibility
• Rapid determination of crosslink density
• Information about relaxation behaviour and structure
