The Vicat test is used by industry for testing materials that have no real melting points, such as cement and mortar. The Vicat test is conducted by measuring the temperature at which a flat-ended needle is able to penetrate the sample, which is known as the “softening point” of the material.
Qualitest’s automatic Vicat Tester has unmatched precision and accuracy, applying force to the sample while also recording the depth of the needle. This Vicat Tester also reduces the time requirements for tests by performing the same test 6 times simultaneously.
Conducting tests in accordance to ASTM C191 standards, and equipped with intuitive data recording and test protocols, Qualitest’s Vicat Tester is one of the best solutions available for carrying out these important quality assurance tests.
