The thermal stability of raw or processed PVC provides information about the quality of the plastic. Higher stability times can be correlated with longer lifespans. With the 895 Thermomat, the dehydrochlorination rate at elevated temperatures can be determined within a short time. Additionally, quality deviations in the purchased raw material as well as in the end products can be detected. The 895 Thermomat has been optimized for this application regarding three important points: safety, handling, and time-savings. The measurement is based on the standard EN ISO 182-3.
