Product Datasheet

The open cup Rapid Tester® is used to determine if a material when heated under test conditions and exposed to an external source of flame, applied in a standard manner, sustains combustion. Test temperature is easily set by adjusting the digital temperature display to the required value. The instrument automatically maintains a constant temperature and incorporates an electronic timer. No test method is faster!
