ASTM C 1216 (C-1216) determines the adhesion and cohesion performance of one-part elastomeric, solvent release sealants at high and low temperatures by the extension and compression of test specimens.

ASTM 1216 requires a universal Extension-Compression Machine designed to extend the test specimens automatically at a constant rate of 3.20 mm (one eighth in.)/h from a joint width of 11.2 mm (seven sixteenths in.) to 14.29 mm (nine sixteenths in.) at −12 +/- 2.8°C ( +10 +/- 5°F). By means of our testing expertise and modular product design, we will help find the solution that is right for you.
