This multipart series starting with Part 1 compares two methods; Heat Deflection Temperature vs. Dynamic Mechanical Analysis curve used to test temperature on plastics, and which one is the better solution.

Heat Deflection Temp ChartPart 2, uses a case study to explain how DMA curve is more advantageous because of the complete and quantitative picture of temperature effects on material.

Measuring temperature dependent plastics accurately is the key for best performance if temperature is critical to the application  

This information may be helpful to designers and engineers, to determine the best plastic material for your next application and take a deeper look at the plastics' performance under temperature changes, giving you complete assurance of your selected plastic's performance.
