SIGMASOFT Thermoplastic: Filled Amorphous Material

Test ID



This TestPak generates the properties needed to perform a simulation of the filling, packing, and cooling phases, as well as warpage/shrinkage and viscoelastic post-molding behavior. These include Bagley-corrected viscosity vs. shear rate at three temperatures (two in the processing range and one below); thermal conductivity; specific heat vs. temperature; PVT data taken in the isothermal heating mode for amorphous materials; and tensile modulus and Poisson's ratio vs. temperatures in two direction as well as shear modulus vs. temperature, and CLTE in two directions. Model fitting for SIGMASOFT is included.

Included Tests

2x M-101T SIGMASOFT Mechanical Test
1x D-020 PVT (Isothermal Heating)
3x R-012 Capillary Rheology with Bagley Correction (1 Temperature)
1x T-303 Thermal Expansion Coefficient by TMA
1x T-015 Specific Heat
1x T-103 Thermal Conductivity Scan
1x M-017 In-Plane Shear Modulus (Plate Twist Method)


Filled pellet material must be provided for the rheology, thermal conductivity, and specific heat tests; filled plaques must be supplied for the CLTE, modulus with Poisson's ratio, and PVT tests.


: 1 kg of pellets


: 20 plaques (4 x 12in)



This TestPak is suitable for fill/pack simulation plus shrinkage and warpage of a filled amorphous material.
