40S-T Thermal Press

The 403S-T manual thermal press provides a stable temperature and pressure environment to create test specimens for tensile tests, or impact tests of plastics. This model is small, light weight, and convenient.

TestResources 403S-T test machine is a hot press plastic forming machine. The machine is loaded with small plastic particles which are heated and pressurized into a uniform plastic board. Test specimens can be made from the plastic board. The 403S-T machine allows users to set a specific pressure and temperature that will be applied to form the specimen. There is a water cooling system to cool the plastic specimen at a predetermined time, if necessary in the plastic forming process.
