750-2024-2 Flow Rates of Thermoplastics by Extrusion Plastometer Price: $224.00

Participants receive two sealed, moisture barrier bags, each containing 36 grams of slightly different polymers. Enough material is supplied for labs to perform more than two test runs. Test Methods ISO 1133 (Procedure A or B) and ASTM D1238 are referenced. 
Testing temperatures of 190°C and 230°C are used in alternating testing rounds, as designated by CTS. The test load remains 2.16 kg. 
CTS does not provide melt densities, and therefore laboratories using Procedure B must be able to determine the melt densities for the samples.
Total number of shipments = 2
Samples ship in July and October.
Enrollment deadline: 15 May 2024
