Originally approved in Note This test method is technically identical to ISO where Type D2 specimens are used except that pressure transducers are an option in this test method and required in ISO Each test result is the average of ve individual determinations from successive injection molding cycles.

NOTE 4—Although this specimen may be used to determine mold shrinkage in both the ow and cross ow directions, the lling pattern does not produce uniform ow lengths and orientation. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

Your comments will receive careful consideration at a meeting of the responsible technical committee, which you may attend. Summary of Test Method 4. The method also accommodates shrinkage at 24 and 48 h, which may be critical for some materials.

Three percent warp is dened as 3 mm depth deection, positive or negative, per mm in length. The data in Tables should not be rigorously applied to acceptance or rejected of material, as those data are specic to the round robin and may not be representative of other lots, conditions, materials, or laboratories.

Pressure transducers are recommended, but not mandatory for specimens Type A and Type B. For example, thermoplastics, which absorb moisture ast be dried before molding. If the document is revised or amended, you will be notified by email.


The decrease in the cavity pressure at hold to zero indicates that the material in the gate has solidied sufficiently to stop ow into the cavity. Start Webshop Product catalog Product presentation. Intertek PTL molds for a 5″ x 5″ x 0.

Factors, such as the amount of material in charge, cooling ast, and pressure application are known to affect shrinkage signicantly. Determination of Moulding Shrinkage 3.

NOTE 2—Although scribe marks are not required, if they are used for injection or compression molded specimens for the measurement of shrinkage, the scribe marks shall be 1. The minimum hold time can be read from the decrease of the cavity pressure to zero. Orientation effects due to ow direction do not generally pertain to compression molding.

As the cooling rate d955-008 the material is proportional to the square of the reciprocal of the thickness, the minimum cooling time for the cavity can be expected to be close to 1.
