Heat Distortion Temperature

- is the temperature where a test piece of a material placed in a heat medium with a bending load (18.6 kg/cm2) applied - reaches a specified deflection.

  • ABS: 104 - 106 oC
  • PVC: 54 - 80 oC
  • HDPE: 43 - 49 oC
  • LDPE: 32 - 41 oC
  • PP: 57 - 64 oC

Vicat Softening Temperature

- is the temperature where a needle shaped penetrator sinks into a test piece a specified depth when a specified vertical load (1 kg) is applied.

  • ABS: 102.3 oC
  • PVC: 92 oC
  • PE: 127.3 oC
  • PP: 152.2 oC
