Nanoindentation of Polymer at Elevated Temperature

In this application, the Nanovea Mechanical Tester, in Nanoindentation mode with a temperature heating plate ( up to 120°C ) is used to study the comparative Polymer Hardness, Polymer Young’s Modulus and Polymer Creep analysis properties between High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) and Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE). The temperature was measured directly on the surface of the polymer with a thermocouple.
