Description

This Standard provides a method of test to determine the Vicat softening temperature of thermoplastics pipes and fittings. It is applicable to thermoplastics materials for which it is possible to measure the temperature at which their rate of softening becomes rapid.

This Standard is identical with and reproduced from ISO 2507-1:1995.

Scope

This part of AS/NZS 2507 specifies a general method for determining the Vicat softening temperature of thermoplastics pipes and fittings.

It includes the adaptation of method B of ISO 306:1994, using a force of 50 N.

This methods is applicable only to thermoplastics materials for which it is possible to measure the temperature at which their rate of softening becomes rapid.

It is not applicable to crystalline or semi-crystalline polymers.
