ASTM D B1 is a testing specification that measures the indentation force deflection of urethane foam and foam-like substances. ASTM D C specifies a method for measuring the compression force necessary to produce a 50% deflection over the entire top surface of the foam test .

The Universal Test Machine would be used for higher forces or very large specimens.
These specialized base plates allow air to escape from the foam during compression. We recommend you purchase and read the full ASTM standard to achieve the best results. For Test F, specimens are generally about mm long blocks with the adtm and depth the same as the material pad thickness. You are seeking to quantify the firmness of your foam. The standard specimen for this test is 50mm X 50mm X 25 mm thick or larger. Generally the test consists of three preload cycles, followed by a measuring cycle aztm which the characteristic values are determined.
This software is a perfect supporter for this standard and supplied graphs for load vs displacement and displacement vs time. Force range of 5 kN to kN 1, lbf tolbf Adjustable test space The most popular choice for static tension and compression tests These dual column testers are available in both tabletop and floor standing models. This test will measure the IFD properties of the foam specimen before and after fatigue cycling. Variations of this method are described in the various factory regulations.
You will want to record tensile stress, tensile strength, and ultimate elongation for Test E. For Test M recovery time is measured in seconds.
ASTM D3574 Testing Equipment for Flexible Cellular Urethane Foams
GK mechanical vice grips can also be used. A 40 mm cut is placed down the middle of one end and 3 samples are required. To increase the accuracy of the travel asm, this standard specifies the correction for machine deformation. One specimen should be tested. In this scenario, the deformation behavior of the specimen is relatively complex. Standards for This Test The standard specimens have a quadratic cross-section with a lateral edge length of 5 or mm.
ASTM D Testing Equipment for Flexible Cellular Urethane Foams
Forces up to 10 kN 2, lbf Low force tabletop systems Modular series of five d5374 options with adjustable test space Affordable testing option for tension, compression, bend, peel and much more. Call one of our engineers to learn more about which package is best for you. Hysteresis tests measure the difference in area under the curves during loading and unloading, representing energy loss.

This testing machine is equally ideal for research and development and for routine quality assurance testing.
Compression hardness ISO , ASTM D
Wstm come in a variety of forms including slab, bonded, and molded flexible cellular urethane foams. This test is similar to ISO The methods used by Renault and PSA are exceptions.
There is a wide range of applications for D including car seats, furniture, mattresses, bedding, pillows, foam products and materials, and bolsters.
Compressive Properties/Compression Stress Value/Compression Stress-Strain Characteristics
We offer machines, apparatus, testers, tensile grips, test fixtures, clamps, holders, jigs, faces, jaws, extensometers, environmental and humidity chambers, furnaces, baths and custom solutions for unique applications.
The density measurement process can be integrated in the test sequence.
There are several test procedures in this standard to help determine the compression, deflection, tear and tensile characteristics of flexible wstm materials urethane foams and polyurethane foams. One sample is required.
