K80040 Force Ductility Mold
Measures the force exerted on a briquet specimen in a standard ductility machine. Use for evaluating the tensile properties of bituminous materials, including asphalt cements, asphalt emulsion residues, polymer modified asphalt cements, and polymer modified asphalt emulsion residues, and for measuring the stress relaxation properties of bituminous materials used in the roofing industry and in the pavement joint sealant industry. Installs easily in the standard or constant temperature ductility machine–no tools are required. Adapter incorporates a linear variable differential transformer (LVDT) to electronically measure the force exerted on the specimen. Stainless steel construction prevents rust and corrosion, and all electrical components are located outside of the water bath. Included digital indicator unit incorporates a power supply for the LVDT and a 0-2 VDC analog output signal for interfacing with a computer data acquisition system, strip chart recorder or datalogger.
