Ageing & Compression

Our series of elastomer compression and aging instruments are the new standard for measuring compression differences or challenges.

MonTech’s CS 3000 compression sets, aging ovens and height gauges provide reliable and repeatable methods for testing and measuring the effect of compressive stresses on an elastomeric material over a period of time.

Results from testing show the material’s loss of resiliency – or its ability to return to its original thickness after prolonged compression. This is also known as the material’s memory or permanent set.

CS 3000 compression sets are used with aging ovens like the AO 3000 to test a material’s performance under varying environmental conditions. TGD 3000 height gage then measures a materials height before and after compression to calculate the material’s loss.
