Pressure equipment for cold-curing resins used in materials testing
When fast-curing resins are allowed to set in a pressure unit, one obtains bubble- and pore free samples. The physical and chemical properties of the resin however remain completely unchanged.
The Technomat is a pressure unit that was designed to suit the special technology of fast-curing resins. The pressure level of 2.0 bar was chosen to make allowance for the polymerization behavior of the cold polymer Technovit, which is used for embedding metallographic specimens and for taking surface impressions in materials testing. In processing Technovit, one can achieve
- clear, bubble-free, transparent specimens in the case of Technovit 4004,
- pore-free embedded specimens in the case of Technovit 4000, 4002 and 4071,
- bubble-free impressions in the case of Technovit 3040
- pore-free castings in the case of Technovit 2060
if curing is carried out in the Technomat.
The functional design of the unit makes it simple and problem-free to operate. When the valve lever is moved upwards, the pressure is built up to a level of 2.0 bar. The pressure gauge within the unit housing indicates the operating pressure. The pressure is released by moving the valve lever downwards. The Technomat is a space- saving, compact unit. The housing is made from macrolon resin and the pressure pot itself is of INOX steel.
Start of operation
Connect to pressure source. Maximum primary pressure 10 bars.
Opening and closing of the pressure pot:
For the opening of the lid position lever in upright position. Turn lid for 90°, tilt and remove from pressure pot. To open after completion of polymerization position lever in upright position. The lid can only be removed after unit is completely depressurized. Lid will then sink into pressure pot. Placing and closing of lid will take place in reverse manner. It must be observed that the supporting strut of the lid fits into the molds on the pressure pot rim.
